Senator Marco Rubio discussed what enabled Ukrainians to stand up against the Russian military attack Monday on “Hannity.”

SEN. MARCO RUBIO: Yeah, I think you see that playing out. Look, I mean, the Russians are contributing about 65%…of all their conventional forces are now inside the country of Ukraine after 20 years of massive increases in defense spending. I think you see a few things – poor planning, no doubt. I think you also find that some Russian equipment is not as good as advertised. But the last thing you see that’s probably the most important is that will to fight. And it is not something that is easily measured. You know you can’t. I don’t think Putin or the Russian army thought the Ukrainians would fight the way they do now, and they play defense in a defensive position that allowed them, for example, for weeks to build defenses around Kyiv . So I don’t think the Russians will be able to get into those areas and take them over. They might be able to level them like you just said, but take them, it’s going to be a tough task, especially in Kyiv.
