North Central College political science professor interviewed on WCPT 820-AM Radio

William Muck provided an update on news coming out of Ukraine and other political science topics

At the end of July, Congressman Mike Wrigley’s office put out a press release following his return from Ukraine stating he was particularly moved by the visit and seeing firsthand some of the most horrifying atrocities that have been conducted in Ukraine. Wrigley is the co-chair of the congressional Ukraine caucus and is also a member of the House permanent select committee on intelligence.

During his visit, he shared with Russian President Vladimir Putin that “his intentions in Ukraine had failed and if he continues this illegal assault Russia will only grow more isolated and more humiliated; Ukraine and its allies will not waiver.”

William Muck, professor and chair of the political science department at North Central College, interviewed with Joan Esposito of WCPT 820-AM Radio, where he addressed the statement from Wrigley and other political issues.

“It’s a pretty bold statement and I think he’s right, that there are very few remaining options for Putin and he’s likely to lose this contest,” said Muck. “It really is going to be a battle of will to ensure that the United States, NATO and the west stay strong in pushing back against Russia—and if that’s the case—if the United States and Europe continue to carry on the station regime to supply Ukraine with weapons, speaking long-term, Russia cannot win.”
