89. ANALYSIS: Marek Menkiszak analyzes Russia’s miscalculations, misperceptions and strategic failures in the war in Ukraine
Marek Menkiszak, Head of the Russian Department at the OSW Center for Eastern Studies in Warsaw, analyzes Russia's miscalculations, misperceptions and strategic failures in the War in Ukraine.
'Russia's decision-making was driven by a mix of ignorance and arrogance... they simply do not understand the changes that have taken place over the last 30 years'
'Russians believe that the losses that Ukrainians are taking in the war will destroy their morale... but the consequences are directly the opposite... there is increasing anger amongst Ukrainians and decreasing will to go for any consessions'.
