Former UN Weapons Inspector and US Marine Corps Intelligence Officer Scott Ritter joined to discuss how Russia has landed a major blow on NATO via its special military operation.

Hungary said on Thursday that it would not support NATO becoming an “anti-China bloc,” pushing back on the alliance taking aim at Beijing during the summit in Washington.
