Max Boot is well known in European countries as an analyst, historian, and expert in the field of military conflicts. Even more interesting is his persona and opinion regarding the war of Russia against Ukraine because of his place of birth. Max Boot was born and lived for a time in Moscow, Russia.
On June 24, it was reported that The Washington Post published new reflections of the expert on the Russian invasion of Ukraine. An American expert believes Russia should be punished for the devastation of Ukraine and the people killed. Max Boot also notes that America provides aid to Ukraine, but it is not enough. At the same time, the expert emphasizes the ability of America and Europe to strengthen military support for the country, which was attacked by the Russian Federation.
This approach will make it possible to repel the occupiers. Boot, like many people, notes that the Russian army is many, but it is not very professional and experienced. That's why Russian soldiers die quickly. But despite that, Russia may cause damage to Ukraine. Therefore, it needs Western weapons. This will allow it to give a sign to Putin.
"Ukrainians lose in the artillery 10 to 1 in a critical battle in the east of the Donbas. This is unacceptable," said the expert.
Also, Max Boot said that the war is being waged not only against Ukraine.
"Russia didn't just attack one country. It struck at the very foundation of the international order that the United States and its allies have been building since 1945. If Russia manages to escape punishment for its aggression, it will send a signal to dictators around the world that they can do whatever they want and that the West is too weak to stop them. Expect that Russian dictator Volodymyr Putin will soon target the Baltic republics — members of NATO, which, like Ukraine, at various times in history we're part of the Russian Empire," said the expert.
