He spent significant time in the Balkans, Afghanistan, Iraq, Chad, Central Africa, and Mali.

Background

The war in Ukraine has entered its third year and the situation on the ground does not match Western expectations. Some analysts started speaking about the possibility of Ukraine being defeated. What is the current situation on the front and what can be expected? Which military/security scenarios are currently analysed and what are their implication for Europe? Which are Europe’s main military challenges if Donald Trump wins the November 2024 elections?

Through an interactive dialogue with the participants, Col. Reisner will offer a comprehensive and practical explanation of current situation. 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 Q&A session. Participants can ask question even before the assigned Q&A time.

Target audience

Professional journalists and academic researchers.

Maximum: 40 participants
