While the United States is doing its best to support Ukraine, Javed Ali, associate professor of practice, discussed the risks that providing weapons to the country creates.

"It looks like we are already implementing a similar campaign (to Afghanistan 40 years ago), but I agree, there also has to be some realization that thinks of the second and third-order effects, in terms of where these weapons are going and who they’re going to," Ali said. "And there has been a far-right extremist element in eastern Ukraine for several years now, so we have to make sure that those types of weapons don’t fall into those hands."
