Ten Years of Conflict: An Update on Ukraine
February 10 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
In February 2014, Russia annexed Crimea and began its ten-year assault on the sovereignty of Ukraine. The escalation of this conflict in 2022 renewed the world’s attention on the expansionist ambitions of Vladimir Putin in the region and garnered military support from Western allies for Ukraine’s defense. The war continues, however, and with little progress on the frontlines, it’s unclear how long Ukraine can count on outside support. This seminar features two joint presentations by experts on the region, Milada Vachudova and Graeme Robertson, who recently traveled to Ukraine. Together, based on eyewitness accounts and informed by expert analysis, they will provide an update on what life is like in the country, and what may be in store for Ukraine, Russia, and Eastern Europe in the coming years.
Milada Vachudova, Professor of Political Science
Graeme Robertson, Professor of Political Science and Director, The Center for Slavic, Eurasian, and Eastern European Studies
Each topic will be presented jointly by the speakers.
