    Ep. № 66 - What are the military options for Ukraine and Russia? - with Hans-Petter Midttun

    What are Ukraine and Russia’s military options in the current situation? Is full-scale invasion a plausible scenario, or should we expect a limited intervention and occupation of parts of Ukrainian territory? We discuss these issues with Hans-Petter Midttun, an independent analyst, a retired officer in the Royal Norwegian Navy, and a former Norwegian Defence Attaché in Ukraine.

    Ep. № 62 - Russian military buildup: a bluff or a real threat? - With Peter Dickinson

Is there a consensus in the United States about it? What are the possible solutions on the table? Is the Zelensky Administration prepared for a military invasion? UkraineWorld’s chief editor Volodymyr Yermolenko discusses these issues with Peter Dickinson, chief editor of the UkraineAlert blog at the Atlantic Council. Support us: patreon.com/ukraineworld

Eclectic and Informative

Wonderful podcast! I absolutely adore listening to these episodes and I always get excited when I see another one posted. All of the discussions are very insightful and the commentators have very impressive English skills and are clearly highly educated. I’m a 25-year old immigrant from Belarus living in the USA and doing research on the Ukrainian conflict for my master’s degree. Commentary and analysis’ from this series has helped me add an additional “inside” perspective into my work and furthered my knowledge on the political and social movements within Ukraine. Highly recommend this series to anyone curious about current-affairs in Ukraine and matters on Ukraine’s evolution.
