War in Ukraine


Sam Cranny-Evans says the West must catch up fast in order to prevent Ukraine from being overwhelmed. The Associate Fellow at the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) in London, was speaking at a time when concerns about Russian military expansion have been high on the agenda, with General Sir Patrick Sanders, Chief of the General Staff of the British Army, highlighting the growing threat during a speech last week. Mr Cranny-Evans told “Russia began shifting its economy and defence industry to a war footing quite early, and it is now beginning to see the effects of doing so.”
