What Led Up To Russia’s War On Ukraine? A Modern History Lesson.

When Russia invaded their neighbor Ukraine this past week, it was just the latest violent chapter in the two countries’ complex history.

Hours before Russia’s deadly air assault began, host Jessica Rosenthal spoke to Fox News strategic analyst General Jack Keane and Senior Foreign Affairs Correspondent Amy Kellogg about what events led up to the attack and what politically and culturally pressures could have driven President Vladimir Putin to make this world-shattering decision.

Retired four-star general Keane discussed President Putin past attempts to use violence to win control over the country of Ukraine and what his motivations could be.

Kellogg, who is currently in Moscow, discussed how the Russian people feel about their President’s desire to reestablish Russia’s power over Ukraine and his rationalizations to use military force.

Due to time limitations, we could not include all of the interview in our original segment. On the FOX News Rundown Extra, you will hear our entire conversations with both General Kean and Amy Kellogg and get more perspective on the War in Ukraine.
