Reuben Johnson: Russian War Effort and Putin

Broadcast Running Time: 23:53

Hostilities in Ukraine are still happening so we invite back today our Ukraine expert Reuben Johnson to evaluate the status of Russia, its military, and its leader while the battle rages on.  He covers a lot of topics, including how pre-war predictions of Russia’s success were way off, Russia’s inability to be strategic on the battlefield, and the lack of Russian youth signing up for the military.  He also addresses rumors about Vladimir Putin’s health, gives some advice to the Biden administration, and comments on the recent attack on a Ukraine shopping center.
