September 15, 2023 – The war in Ukraine is at its most critical tipping point. Having won their survival by resisting Russian advances at the beginning of the war, the Ukrainian people are now engaged in a hard-fought counteroffensive to liberate the rest of their territory and citizens.
Our Fellow Jonah Gosnay sat down with Dr. Fred Kagan to discuss the current state of the counteroffensive and our role in setting up Ukraine for success.
Featuring: Dr. Fred Kagan, Director of the Critical Threats Project at the American Enterprise Institute
