Larus Comments on Ukraine War on Vietnam News

Elizabeth Freund Larus, Professor Emerita of the Department of Political Science and International Affairs, offered commentary on Russia’s war in Ukraine on Vietnam News. Dr. Larus claimed that Ukraine and Russia are locked in a war of attrition and that the war is going to last months or perhaps years. Dr. Larus indicated that supplying Ukraine with NATO arms will help Ukraine fight against Russia but will not lead to a decisive victory, and that it will be difficult for Ukraine, even with NATO arms, to undo the success that Russia has had in taking Mariupol and other areas in the east. Her comments begin at 13 minutes into the program.
