History is now changing course. The Russian invasion of Ukraine will have long-lasting consequences for war and peace in Europe. Ukrainians are now bravely fighting for their country and Russia’s war has been met with an increasingly tougher response from the EU, the US, and a broader alliance of countries. Finally, Europe is rising to the occasion. But what more can be done in increasing the sanctions and improving the military capabilities of Ukraine? How can we address the risks of the war spilling over to other European regions? What types of attacks on the broader European region can be expected from Russia?
