As the war in Ukraine grinds on, Michèle Flournoy expresses concern that Washington needs to be prepared for “the next Ukraine.”

She writes that “Washington must ramp up support for vulnerable partners — before it’s too late.” Flournoy served as under secretary of defense for policy during the Obama administration. She’s co-founder and managing partner at WestExec, a strategic advisory firm.
