A war is raging in Europe. Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, 2022. Arguing that Ukraine was controlled by nationalists and Nazis, Russia sought to seize major cities including the capitol, Kyiv, and trigger a regime change. After failures to achieve these objectives, Russia now appears to be regrouping its forces to target Ukraine’s eastern region. Russia’s aggression has resulted in significant civilian deaths, the alleged commission of war crimes, and the displacement of millions of Ukrainians. The invasion has also unified the West, with Germany pledging to increase military spending, broad sanctions against Russian leadership and industry, and discussions in Sweden and Finland about joining NATO. Our experts will review events to date, what we can expect from the Kremlin, the Biden administration’s policy, and what comes next. Please join us for this timely conversation.
