As the war in Ukraine evolves, how have the political and strategic dimensions of the crisis changed? This conversation explores the complexities of ongoing war — including the conflict's roots, the United States’ involvement, and military aid.
Two career diplomats, Ambassador David M. Satterfield, director of the Baker Institute, and Glenn Corn, Russian affairs expert and former CIA senior executive, offer their insights into the personality and motivations of Russian President Vladimir Putin and the strategic implications of how Putin’s war in Ukraine ends for the interests of the U.S. and NATO.
