Lessons and Recommendations from the War in Ukraine.
Since its eruption in 2014, the war for Ukraine has provided Russia with a proving ground for new strategies, tactics and capabilities.

What trends are emerging from the fighting in Ukraine; how might this impact planning and preparedness inside NATO; and what's to be done about it?
