TOKYO -- With Ukraine gearing up for a major counteroffensive against Russian forces, the world is closely watching the development of what could be a turning point of the war triggered by a Russian invasion in February 2022.

But Ukraine's counterattack would not be a Battle of Normandy, the Allied invasion of German-occupied Western Europe during World War II.
