“After they began to supply Ukraine with weapons and ammunition, the West began to feel an acute shortage of weapons. In addition, the confrontation between Russia and Ukraine has shown that we need to modify our air defenses. We need higher quality systems to intercept ballistic missiles and a little simpler, which are widely used to eliminate drones, ”Klüver Ashbrook, vice president of the Bertelsmann Stiftung International Foundation, said.

She notes that America and Europe should more soberly assess the power of the Russian army, since they are a formidable force.

“Western countries will make a big mistake if they continue to underestimate the power of the Russian army,” Ashbrook said.
