War in Ukraine


Kyiv announced Thursday that it had signed an agreement with the United States to help move production of arms to Ukraine, as doubts hang over Western support for its conflict with Russia. Since the beginning of Russia's invasion, Ukraine has depended on Western weapons and ammunition to hold out against Russian forces. But after nearly two years of conflict there are signs of growing weariness in Europe and the United States to provide more financial and military aid. As Western resolve wanes, Ukraine risks being "left on its own against the Russian aggression". For in-depth analysis and a deeper perspective on Putin's brutal invasion of Ukraine, FRANCE 24's Shona Bhattacharyya is joined by Natia Seskuria, Associate Fellow at the Royal United Services Institute and Lecturer in Russian Politics.
