While history does not always repeat itself, it does offer lessons. Mimi Geerges sat down with Ron Marks, former DCI Senate Liaison at the Central Intelligence Agency, to discuss what history can tell us about Putin’s actions against Ukraine.

  • Marks, currently a visiting professor at George Mason University and senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, said the United States should continue its strong support for Ukraine, send weapons quickly and “sustain ourselves” in what will be a long war.
  • He said the United States has historically avoided casualties but Russia has not. “Moscow’s whole approach is textbook 1980s KGB and Soviet military standard issue,” Marks wrote in an op-ed.
  • Putin is succeeding in controlling information and convincing Russians there is a patriotic reason to invade Ukraine, said Marks.
