It's a vital front line in the escalating standoff between NATO and Russia. It's a potential soft spot on the West's eastern frontier. And it is a large arena for mischief from Moscow.
The Black Sea region is a complex and dynamic space where security calculations are shifting and the stakes are rising.
Brian Whitmore on the latest Power Vertical podcast to discuss the Kremlin's goals and the West's options are CEPA's LTG (Ret.) Ben Hodges and Donald N Jensen.
