The situation in Ukraine

The situation in Ukraine

I worked for a few years on security in Ukraine, so I was asked for my thoughts on the situation between Ukraine & Russia right now. I did a podcast on the subject, titled “More than a few thoughts on the situation in Ukraine.” It’s long, but this is not a simple matter. I hope this provides some degree of understanding. Hope you find it useful. #JethroHelpsUkraine #armukrainenow #presidentzelenskyy
