Brothers Armed: Military Aspects of the Crisis in Ukraine. By Ruslan Pukhov

In this updated and expanded second edition, Brothers Armed builds on the critical analysis presented in the first, examining the military reform efforts of both Russia and Ukraine, the antecedents to Russian intervention in Crimea, the military and political mechanics of the intervention itself, and the nature of and grounds for the subsequent incorporation of Crimea into Russia. New essays examine what has transpired in the region since the incorporation of Crimea and assess the causes and possible consequences of the ongoing crisis in Ukraine.
