Ali provides insight on war in Ukraine

December 15, 2022 Newsweek

Javed Ali, Newsweek: "Over the past year both the Ukrainians and the Russians have demonstrated an ability to make advances, hold territory, but then withdraw to different locations in order to regroup from losses and consolidate for future operations. Putin will likely promote Russian gains in Bakhmut as a strategic sign of renewed momentum that can carry over into different parts of the campaign. The reality, however, will probably be far different as the war has shown thus far. And Ukraine is very likely to push against Russian formations there or elsewhere in the near future."
