Since the beginning of the Russian invasion nearly a year ago, Ukraine has shocked military experts worldwide with its ability to hold off the larger and better-equipped Russian army. However, there have been concerns in recent weeks by the West that the tide may be turning in Vladimir Putin’s favor.
Even before Russia’s recent gains, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has never stopped emphasizing the need for allies to provide them with necessary military aid and heavy weaponry.
This week, after months of hesitancy and debate, both Germany and the United States have agreed to give Ukraine advanced tanks.
Before those nations made their decisions official, guest host Dana Perino spoke with Michael Allen, the founder of Beacon Global Strategies and former Special Assistant for National Security to President George W. Bush.
Allen, a foreign policy expert, discussed how a Ukrainian counteroffensive could put the pressure back on Moscow and why the advanced tanks would be so beneficial to Zelenskyy’s military.
He also complained that the Biden administration has failed to make the case to the American people why funding the effort to defeat Russia is so critical.
Later, Perino and Allen discuss the book project he is involved with, Hand-Off: The Foreign Policy George W. Bush Passed to Barack Obama, which details the Bush administration’s national security and foreign policies through now-declassified documents.
And speaking of classified documents, Allen, who has handled his fair share of them, also weighs in on the ongoing controversies currently surrounding President Biden and former Donald Trump.
Due to time limitations, we could not include all of the conversations in our original segment. On the FOX News Rundown Extra, you will hear our entire interview with Michael Allen, the founder of Beacon Global Strategies and former Special Assistant for National Security to President George W. Bush, and hear more about his take on President Biden’s Ukraine strategy and what we can learn from past international conflicts.
