Speaker

Colonel Dr. Markus Reisner is a General Staff officer serving in the Austrian Armed Forces. He is the Head of the Research and Development Department at the Theresian Military Academy in Wiener Neustadt, commander of the Austrian Guards Battalion and author of books and articles on military history and the future of war. He served in the Jagdkommando, the Special Operations Forces unit of the Austrian Armed Forces and was deployed in different conflict zones. He spent significant time in the Balkans, Afghanistan, Iraq, Chad, Central Africa, and Mali.

Background

The war in Ukraine has entered its second year and the situation on the ground, in Europe and the US, has been evolving: from declaring that no fighter jets would be sent to Ukraine to deploying the first airplanes to the Ukrainian army. What do different options imply in practical terms?

Through interactive dialogue with the participants, Col. Reisner will offer a comprehensive and practical explanation of different aspects of the war: from why certain weapons are requested to why certain weapons are delivered, from initial to current military strategy, from initial to current price of producing/purchasing of weapons, etc. What are the implications of the latest US intelligence leaks?

Col. Dr Reisner will explain if Europe produces/possess enough weapons, how long it takes to train the combatants for the use of specific weapons, the implications of the war of attrition for Kyiv and Moscow, and for Europe, and will respond to any other question of the participants.

Col. Dr Reisner is a frequent guest of Austrian and European media, mostly invited to evaluate the situation on the Ukrainian battlefield.

We invited him to offer a comprehensive and practical understanding of the war, beyond daily news.

Format and Moderation

Conversation moderated by Mirjana Tomic, fjum, followed by a coffee break, and a Q&A session. Participants can ask question even before the assigned Q&A time.

Target audience

Professional journalists and academic researchers.
