TANKS TO UKRAINE/General Ben Hodges with Dana Lewis
Germany has finally announced it will allow Leopard Tanks to be exported to Ukraine. And the U.S. will send a token force of M1-Abrams tanks.
This potentially changes the course of the war in Ukraine from holding Russia back, to defeating Russian forces including in the Crimea.
It's a major escalation of the conflict because Europe and America see no way out of this war, but to defeat Russia. Escalate to de-escalate can mean many things in the months to come in Ukraine.
Back Story host Dana Lewis talks to the former U.S. Army Commander in Europe, Ret Lt. Gen Ben Hodges who says the allies are scared to defeat Russia, but must do so.
