Robert Bell, distinguished professor of the practice in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, was interviewed for the piece, 'Losses, Morale and Counterattacks Stymie Russia’s Donbas Offensive', which aired on April 18, 2022 in The Moscow Times.

An excerpt:

Ukrainians remain in heavily fortified positions to the west of the line of contact with separatist forces that has been in place since 2015, explained Bell. 

“The plan of the Russians is to bring pincer movements down from the north and up from the south in an attempt to encircle Ukrainian forces and get beyond the line of contact,” he said.
