The event sets a precedent: no one wants to cross the red line that could lead to the disaster of a world war. Once the actors actually saw the ball rolling on the tilted plane, they realized that it needed to be stopped by throwing water on the fire.
The West intends to maintain the flow of arms and ammunition to Ukraine, but will its industrial-military base be up to the task? Do the United States and NATO have enough weapons to supply Ukraine in a protracted conflict?
The war between Russia and Ukraine is entering its third month of fighting with the situation on the ground still very uncertain. How will it continue? Is there a danger of widening? What will be the impact on Italians?

Neither with Putin nor with gay pride. The Italian conservatives' embarrassment regarding the Ukrainian war
It is necessary to divest oneself of the ideological or, if one prefers, value-based interpretation, and analyze the conflict as a clash between the power policies of two opposing blocs, with different interests that are difficult to reconcile.

Three experts renowned internationally discussed for Centro Studi Machiavelli how the Russian-Ukrainian war will proceed and what the consequences will be for Europe and America.
