Episode 55 – Russia‘s Military Strategy in Europe

Episode Summary:
In Episode 55 of the Aerospace Advantage Podcast, Russia’s Military Strategy in Europe, host John “Slick” Baum is joined by Justin Bronk and Samuel Cranny-Evans of the Royal United Services Institute and the Mitchell Institute’s own Heather Penney to dive into Russian strategy. We’ve spent a lot of time on the Aerospace Advantage talking about China, but Russia poses an equally concerning threat to the US and our EUCOM allies–and the two threats have distinct differences. Whether it be military intervention in Ukraine, Syria, or Georgia, Russia’s conventional military might is still strong, and Putin is becoming increasingly aggressive in wielding it to achieve his objectives. So, to understand the threat that Russia poses, there’s no better perspective than from the strategic thinkers at RUSI who watch in their own backyard Russia move the chess pieces.
