Volodymyr Dubovyk, Director of the Center, has had a privilege to meet General Philip M. Breedlove during his visit to the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs at Georgia Tech University in Atlanta, Georgia, on November 15th, 2016.

Currently general P.M. Breedlove is a distinguished professor at the S. Nunn school. Previously he has served as the 17th Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR) of NATO Allied Command Operations, from May 2013 until May 4, 2016.

Philip M. Breedlove was one of the top military figures to call Russian aggression against Ukraine by its real name and to raise an alarm about the threat it presents not just for Ukraine but well beyond. He became instrumental in initiating the process of strengthening defense capabilities and level of preparedness for the Alliance's eastern flank.
