PAST EVENT

ADM GREGORY JOHNSON, SUSAN THORNTON MODERATED BY HAROLD PACHIOS

July 22, 2022

Admiral Johnson and retired senior U.S. diplomat Susan Thornton did not pull punches in their predictions about the difficult path the Ukrainians face in their war with the Russians. They reminded us that it will be a long cold winter that will challenge NATO allies’ resolve to remain united in their sanctions against the Russians and military support for the Ukraine army. A unifying theme that inspires Americans not to flag in their support is not evident. How long will the conflict last? How will it end? Listen to the recording below.
