Silicon Lifeline: Western Electronics at the Heart of Russia's War Machine
Thursday, January 26, 2023 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM ET
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on 24 February 2022 has not gone to plan. Launched in the expectation of a surgical occupation of Ukrainian cities, it has become a grinding attritional struggle that is rapidly degrading the Russian military. This report, which contains an examination of the components and functioning of 27 of Russia’s most modern military systems – including cruise missiles, communications systems and electronic warfare complexes – concludes that the degradation in Russian military capability could be made permanent if appropriate policies are implemented.
Join us on Thursday, January 26th, for a conversation with RUSI experts James Byrne, Gary Somerville, and Dr. Jack Watling (Wilson Center Global Fellow) at the Wilson Center on the findings detailed in their Silicon Lifeline report.
