Transcription

Stavridis: Good day everybody. I'm Jim Stavridis, Dean of the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. I'm here with one of my favorite professors, Dick Shultz. Professor Shultz has been here for pushing 30 years. He arrived just after I completed my own PhD in 1984 and he's been, along with Bob Pfaltzgraff, the heart and soul of the security studies program here for decades. He's also one of the foremost observers of global security events, so I thought it would be a terrific opportunity to ask him a few questions about what's happening in Ukraine. If I could, Dick, let me just begin by saying thanks for appearing for our alumni. Shultz: Sure. Stavridis: I think the question in everybody's mind is were you surprised when you saw Vladimir Putin invade Crimea? Shultz: You know, I wasn't, Jim, and the reason is that I think of Putin as a revanchist, so he is somebody who not only rejects the existing status quo but he sees the status quo as something that needs to be walked back and justice achieved. Stavridis: I think that's right, Dick, and you know my own sense is a lot of this reflects his reaction to the fall of the Soviet Empire. John McCain always says when he looks at Vladimir Putin's eyes, he doesn't see a soul as George Bush did. He sees three letters, KGB. Well, I think the next question is knowing what you do about Vladimir Putin. Do you think he will continue on? Is there going to be a further encroachment into Ukraine? Too soon to tell? Shultz: I think that it's too soon to tell. It's a crisis, so all crises have pauses and I think we're at a pause point. He's trying to see what will NATO do, what will the EU do, but if he can get away with it, I think he will go further in Ukraine because, for him, Ukraine is part of that loss that he wants to recover. Stavridis: Yea, I've been saying publicly that I think there's about 1 in 4 chance that he will push forward and whether he does or not, in my view, depends on his perception of the cost to him of doing so. Let's face it, there's a reason there's 40,000 Russian troops on that border right now. So, more to follow in the days ahead, don't you think? Shultz: I do. You know one thing that I thought about is that he might revert back to that KGB bag of tricks. So, this is a good place for a kind of covert political action to try to play this federalization concept that they have been talking about. Stavridis: I was going to say you're hearing more about that from Sergei Lavrov and from Putin himself. Stavridis: Well, I guess the last thing I'd ask you about, this is back to my old day job, which is NATO. Put yourself in the shoes of the Secretary General of NATO. What do you think the Alliance should be doing about all this? Shultz: I think that the Alliance first of all has to take a very strong position that this was illegal and while we might not be able to push him back out of Crimea, he can't go further. And the way that I would do that would be to start by assuring our members of NATO that are on the forward edge of this fight, and that means the Baltic States, and I would do that by increasing the NATO footprint there. So, that would be the first thing. Stavridis: I agree with that. I totally agree. I think I would probably put Poland in the mix as well because of the historical issues involved there. Shultz: And then I think that I would also probably extend the NATO footprint into the Ukraine by assisting the Ukrainians in security sector reform and defense modernization. Now what this will say to him is that we're going to get ready to bring the Ukraine into NATO and that will be a very hard signal if you want that to happen, keeping pushing. Stavridis: Yeah that would be provocative. I would say perhaps the other thing that we should be doing is sharing intelligence and information with Ukraine and also working on the cyber piece of this. Shultz: I agree. Stavridis: Well, a wonderful conversation. A quick snapshot of what's happening in a very, very controversial place in the world these days. Maybe I'll bring you back in a month or two, Dick, and we'll see where it goes. Thanks for being with us today. Shultz: My pleasure. Stavridis: One other thing for our alumni. We've got a wonderful time of year coming up, which is mid-May, here at The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy because that's graduation week and it's also class week where we bring together alumni. We've got clambakes, we've got lots of opportunities to meet students and walk around the school. We've got class individual reunions. It all kicks off on the 15th of May, which is a Thursday, and runs through the weekend. I hope I see you there. We're waiting for you at The Fletcher School.
