Power Vertical Podcast Ep. 24

There’s danger for the West on the high seas.

From the Baltic in the north to the Black in the south, Russia has ramped up its maritime military posture and is aggressively testing NATO’s defenses.

Like the Suwałki Corridor, the Baltic and Black seas represent two soft spots on the West’s Eastern Front.

So what are we going to do about it?

To navigate these choppy waters, Brian Whitmore is joined by CEPA Pershing Chair in Strategic Studies LTG (Ret.) Ben Hodges on the latest Power Vertical podcast.
