Tanks, warplanes, battleships, brinkmanship, and water.


Does it all add up to a new crisis around the occupied Crimean peninsula?


Today we’ll take a close look at the rising tensions between Moscow and Kyiv and the rising temperature in the broader Black Sea region as Russia gears up for major military exercises in just a couple months. 


Listen to the Power Vertical Podcast as Brian Whitmore is joined by CEPA’s Pershing Chair, LTG (Ret.) Ben Hodges, and Michael Kofman, director of Russian studies at CNA and a fellow at the Kennan Institute.
