General Breedlove, former Supreme Allied Commander Europe and Commander of US European Command, engaged with BENS Southeast members in a discussion centered on his valuable insights and perspectives regarding the ongoing Russia/Ukraine conflict, which has persisted for nearly two years. Given his previous roles as SACEUR and EUCOM Commander, General Breedlove offered a distinctive and informed viewpoint on the conflict.
