In this video, our Chairman John Stevens and Director Brendan Donnelly discuss the Russian invasion of Ukraine and its consequences for European security. They describe the radical change that has now taken place in European and particularly German thinking about security. They predict much greater future cohesion within the EU on defence-related matters. Brexit means that the UK will be excluded from this process. Its traditional role as an intermediary between America in continental Europe will therefore rapidly disappear.
