Russia has warned NATO that transports carrying weapons in Ukraine are targets. As Putin tries to threaten and weaken the alliance, more countries are seeking NATO membership.

  • General Wesley Clark (Ret.), senior fellow at UCLA’s Burkle Center for International Relations and former NATO Supreme Allied Commander Europe, said the war is “ethnic cleansing,” “essentially genocide” and an attempt to erase Ukraine as a state and eliminate those who stand up for their rights.
  • Clark said Ukraine needs more artillery, ammunition and intelligence targeting and said the recognition of Ukrainian competence has empowered the Biden administration to move beyond its initial posture despite escalation concerns.
  • He said if Russia clears Mariupol, it would provide a path for reinforcement of Russian forces and bargaining leverage. Holding it would seal Ukraine’s fate as impoverished, he said.
