The Institute’s Joshua Pollack recently wrote an opinion piece in the Washington Post about the possible ramifications of imposing a no-fly zone over Ukraine.
The senior research associate at the Middlebury Institute James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies notes that although a no-fly zone might help Ukraine, President Biden’s position ruling out directly attacking Russian forces in Ukraine is necessary as an armed conflict courts nuclear exchange. As Pollack states, “If we are to safeguard the values of free societies, those societies must continue to exist. The best response to Putin’s reckless gamble with Russia’s fortunes isn’t an even more reckless gamble of our own.”
Sarah Bidgood MANPTS ’16, director of the Eurasia Nonproliferation Program at the Middlebury Institute James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies, recently penned a Foreign Policy article about the implications of the war in Ukraine on nuclear arms control.
