20: Russia’s failing military strategy (Alexander Vindman)

Olga and Mo are joined by retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman to discuss Ukraine as the defenders of democracy and Russia’s failing military strategy.

As a child, Vindman was born to Jewish parents in Ukraine (former Soviet Ukraine) before emigrating to Brooklyn’s Brighton Beach neighborhood. The former Director for European Affairs for the United States National Security Council found himself at the center of a firestorm for his decision to report the infamous phone call that led to President Donald Trump’s impeachment. He was appointed as the Pritzker Military Foundation’s first Pritzker Military Fellow. His memoir “Here, Right Matters: An American Story” is a must read.
