One of Russian President Vladimir Putin's main goals in this year’s invasion of Ukraine was to quickly conquer the port city of Mariupol so that he could then devote more troops and resources to subduing Kyiv and the rest of the nation. But the defenders of Mariupol put up lionhearted resistance for months on end that defied all expectations and changed the course of the war.
