It's the most vulnerable point in NATO's frontline and it is vital to the defense of the Baltic states.

If Russia and NATO ever engage in armed conflict in Europe, the epicenter is likely to be the Suwałki Corridor—a 65-kilometer strip of the Polish-Lithuanian border situated between Belarus and the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad.

How vulnerable is the Suwałki Corridor? And what can be done to defend it?

On this week’s Power Vertical Podcast, I discuss this with LTG (Ret.) Frederick Benjamin Hodges, the former commander of U.S. Army Europe, currently the Pershing Chair in Strategic Studies at CEPA, and co-author of the upcoming report: Securing The Suwałki Corridor: Strategy, Statecraft, Deterrence, and Defense.
