"The current fight and lasting implications of the war in Ukraine," written by Vice Admiral (ret.) Robert Murrett, was published in The Hill. "Ukrainian armed forces continue to outperform and have already attained a strategic victory in causing Moscow to significantly reduce their goals in this war," says Murrett, professor of practice of public administration and international affairs. "They are effectively contesting Russian forces on the ground, in the air and at sea."

Murrett says it's also apparent that the invasion of Ukraine is a dramatic step back for Russia. "The impact of diplomatic isolation, economic sanctions, losses of military personnel and equipment, the exodus of talented young people and an internal crackdown on dissent will be longstanding," he says.
