Ukraine war: A successful surprise attack - but danger still looms - BBC News

Ukraine says it has made significant gains in pushing back Russian troops, retaking more than 3,000 sq km (1,158 sq miles) of territory in recent days.

Jonathan Beale, the BBC's defence correspondent, takes a closer look at why they have been so successful - and what hurdles Ukraine's forces may still face in winning the war.

"Don't underestimate the Ukrainian's ability to surprise," a senior US military officer told me early this summer, just as Russia was continuing to make advances in the Donbas.

Ukraine's ability to surprise has become a hallmark of this war: from the Russian retreat from Kiev, to recent attacks in Crimea. Now there's another surprise happening in the east of the country.
