Fox News senior strategic analyst General Jack Keane provides professional analysis of the Russia-Ukraine war amid Putin’s decision to mobilize 300,000 troops to rebuild the struggling Russian army. 

Russian President Vladimir Putin is aware he’s "losing this war" against Ukraine and is forcing an annexation referendum vote to score a "political victory" with the Russian people, according to retired four-star Army Gen. Jack Keane.
