The War in Ukraine – An Updated view with Dr. Jeffrey McCausland
On February 22, 2022, the world shifted when Russia invaded Ukraine. Now five months later, we still witness devastation in Ukraine and the attack on democracy. We are seeing criminal acts as Russia uses war tactics that target civilians in the hope that the solidarity and will of the Ukrainian people will be broken. We are also feeling the wars impact the world economy. So when and how will this end? No one has a crystal ball, but we can examine the direction the world’s most robust and influential economies are taking in the hope that this will end sooner rather than later. In March, at the beginning of the war, we spoke about the invasion with one of our most knowledgeable and repeat guests Dr. Jeffrey McCausland . Five months later, we check in with Dr. McCausland, whose vast military and leadership experience can help us understand what is happening today and where we may be heading.
