The purposes of a war provide the original motive for fighting and the basis for the war’s political aims.
The war in Ukraine illuminates several important features of the Russian military and warfare, according to the author of a new paper published by the Association of the U.S. Army.
As Russia’s war on Ukraine enters its ninth month, U.S. Army leaders are watching carefully and gleaning valuable lessons about the realities of the modern battlefield, the challenges of sustaining an extended conflict and the capabilities of the foe.
During a panel Oct. 11 at the Association of the U.S. Army’s Annual Meeting and Exposition, service modernization officials described what they’ve learned so far about how to best support Ukraine in its fight for survival and how the Army can posture itself to be resilient in future conflicts.
The power of information operations is one of the biggest lessons the Army can learn from the war in Ukraine, two Army special operations leaders said.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has been a “powerful” figure as he’s put the spotlight on Russia’s attack on his people and his country and sought to motivate the other nations of the world to support the Ukrainians’ fight, said Lt. Gen. Jonathan Braga, commander of Army Special Operations Command.
The Association of the U.S. Army is releasing five new podcasts in August, including a soldier who turned his passion for fishing into a post-retirement business and an Army family that has given much during the war in Afghanistan.
First up in the “Army Matters” series is an interview with retired Sgt. Maj. Burnie Haney, who owns New York Fishing Adventures with Captain Burnie Haney in Henderson, New York.
When the Army launches a final version of its Multi-Domain Operations doctrine by year’s end, it will be partly informed by the fighting in Ukraine, a senior officer said.
“We say lessons learned a lot, but we’re observing those lessons right now,” Gen. Paul Funk, commander of the Army Training and Doctrine Command, said at a recent breakfast event hosted by the Association of the U.S. Army as part of its Coffee Series.
The Army is trying to learn from Russian fighting in Ukraine, according to the Army chief of staff.
“This conflict is not over. It is very, very serious,” said Gen. James McConville in an interview with Government Matters. The fighting has now gone on for more than 100 days with no end in sight.
