Much of the attention on U.S. support for Ukraine focuses on air and missile defense, but according to Arthur Herman, senior fellow at Hudson Institute, ignoring the naval aspect of the conflict would be a mistake.

  • Herman said he has been urging the United States and NATO to keep Ukrainians supplied with anti-ship missiles because they provide needed capabilities and force the Russians to stay back from the coast.
  • Access to the Black Sea is crucial for Ukraine to keep its position in the global economic order, said Herman, and is vital to Russia because it allows its shipping to reach the rest of the world through the Mediterranean.
  • Herman said Russia probably has 25-30 ships in the Black Sea off the Ukrainian coast but that Ukraine has hit some of them.
