The Eastern Front: Episode 13
The Russian military faltered over the weekend but fighting in Ukraine picked up again on Monday. Mason Clark, Lead Russia Analyst at the Institute for the Study of War, joins Giselle, Dalibor, and Iulia again with updates from the weekend.
Mason takes a look at why the fighting paused over the weekend, what’s happening in Kharkiv, and the state of Kyiv. Our hosts also discuss Belarus’ threat of entering the war, Russian disinformation, and how Europe continues to respond to the conflict.
