Apparently, no one told Donald Trump about it, but there’s a war going on in Ukraine, with national forces fighting pro-Russian separatists, and maybe a few Russian soldiers, as well. It’s called the frozen war, because the front lines hardly move, but the shooting and the dying grind on.

Here, too, it’s hard to say who’s winning.
