The JALLC recently published one of its Factsheets summarizing the work that it has conducted in 2023 on its Observations from Russia’s war against Ukraine. The JALLC produced three reports on the topic in 2023, reporting on Ukraine-related entries submitted to the NATO Lessons Learned Portal (NLLP), an analysis of relevant open-source publications, and an overview of observations extracted from a range of sources including from NATO Nations, NATO HQs, and again, from open-source material.

You can download a copy of the factsheet here, and copies of the reports mentioned in this factsheet can be requested from the JALLC upon demonstration of the appropriate security clearances.
