Ukraine-Russia Border Crisis
How are events likely to play out politically, economically and historically in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine? What should be the response of the United States, and what ramifications and concerns might the invasion raise for Americans? Fulton Schools Professor Brad Allenby (pictured), co-chair of the Weaponized Narrative Initiative at ASU’s Center on the Future of War, talks about the complexities of the situation and warns about the risks involved in the ways in which the U.S. could get entangled in the conflict. One possibility, Allenby says, is that Russia could retaliate against the imposition of strong economic sanctions by the U.S. and its allies by launching cyber warfare attacks aimed at disrupting other countries’ economies, financial markets and perhaps even energy markets.
