CHRISTIAN LEUPRECHT IS A POLITICAL SCIENCE ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR AT ROYAL MILITARY COLLEGE AND QUEEN’S UNIVERSITY.
HE SAYS IT’S IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT THERE IS RATIONALE BEHIND WHAT RUSSIA IS DOING.
LEUPRECHT SAYS THIS IS THE MOST SIGNIFICANT NAVAL BASE THE RUSSIANS HAVE …. AND HE SAYS ANY INSTABILITY AROUND THAT BASE WOULD BE A THREAT TO RUSSIA’S GLOBAL AND REGIONAL INTEREST.
HE ALSO SAYS IT’S A DIFFICULT BALANCE TO STRIKE FOR THE EUROPEANS, CANADIANS AND AMERICANS.

“On the one hand the west needs to condemn what is happening but on the other hand they don’t want to over em bold the Ukraine so that Ukraine doesn’t make false moves or wrong moves here that could only further exacerbate the instability that we are seeing.”
