    Stalled military help and grumpy neighbours have added to Ukraine’s hardships this winter

    Eternally long lines of stalled transport trucks at Ukraine’s border with Poland may be an apt metaphor for broader frustrations and challenges facing the war-weary nation as 2023 winds down.

    A blockade by Polish truckers is just one in a series of cascading issues that have combined to thwart Ukraine’s ability to support its military and resist Russia’s almost two-year-old invasion.
