Michael Clarke is a defense and security expert as well as a former director-general of the Royal United Services Institute, a London-based defense and security think tank. In an interview with RFE/RL Georgian Service's Vazha Taberidze, Clarke says Russia may have the upper hand in Ukraine but predicts "the pendulum might start to swing against Russia in 2025, when Kyiv's arms industry should be in better shape." Clarke cautions, however, that the outcome of the U.S. presidential election later this year looms large as well.
