The article discusses the efforts and challenges faced by major corporations in meeting their commitments to stop using ingredients that contribute to deforestation. The Tropical Forest Alliance 2020, supported by companies like Mars, Nestlé, and Walmart, was established to assist the Consumer Goods Forum in achieving a deforestation-free supply chain by 2020. Despite the pledge, significant deforestation has occurred, and many companies admit they will not fully meet their goals. Nestlé claims a high percentage of its commodities will be deforestation-free by the end of 2020, while Mars has set a target for 2025 for some ingredients. Kellogg's acknowledges falling short of the goal, and Walmart cites complexities in certain supply chains. Other companies like Mondelez, PepsiCo, and Unilever have not provided data or declined to comment.

Olly Lambert documents two months on Ukraine’s southern front, capturing the efforts of volunteer special forces as they prepare to retake Kherson, a strategic move that could alter the war's course. In Mykolaiv, despite ongoing rocket attacks and the threat of Russian advancement, Ukrainian resistance remains strong. Civilians, including an architect named Alexei, contribute to the war effort by building drones. Lambert meets Roman Kostenko, an MP and former Special Forces officer, who leads volunteer units on the front line. Despite their inexperience, these volunteers, including a carpet salesman and a kebab shop owner, engage in mortar missions against Russian tanks. The arrival of heavy US artillery bolsters the Ukrainian forces, leading to a planned offensive on Kherson. Lambert observes the strategic planning and execution of operations, noting the combination of foreign weaponry, tactical army maneuvers, and a vast volunteer force, all united by a relentless will to win.
