Russia’s invasion into Ukraine has prompted questions in militaries throughout the world.

This event hosted by Defense News at AUSA explored how the invasion of Ukraine will alter acquisition needs in terms of speed and capability and how the events of the invasion challenged conventional thinking about acquisitions.
