Russia Invades Ukraine: A Public Forum

March 2, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Location: Room 313 Pyle Center (702 Langdon Street, Madison WI)

The world has been shocked by the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Why did this happen? What is the true historical relationship between Russia and Ukraine? How are people reacting in Russia? What are the implications for the United States, NATO, and international security? What will be the impact of sanctions and other financial penalties that the United States and its allies have imposed on Russia? A panel of University of Wisconsin faculty members will address these and other questions, and there will be ample time to ask questions, exchange perspectives, and share information. Please join us live, if you can, or via Zoom if you cannot attend in person.

Please note that all students, employees and visitors to the UW-Madison campus are required to wear masks when inside campus buildings, regardless of COVID-19 vaccination status. More information on this policy is here.

This event will also be live-streamed over Zoom. This Zoom video is a static feed of the in-person panel at the Pyle Center. Zoom viewers can submit questions to the webinar host but otherwise this video will not be interactive. Register for the Zoom stream here.

This panel discussion will be recorded and uploaded to CREECA’s YouTube channel soon after the event (links will follow).
