UW Now Series: An Update on Ukraine

August 2 @ 7:00 pm

This event is not sponsored by CREECA.

It has been five months since we first discussed the Russian invasion of Ukraine — just a few days after it began. Have things gone as expected? Has the NATO alliance been effective in supporting Ukrainian military operations? Are the sanctions against Russia working? How is Putin’s alliance with China affecting the aspirations of both countries? Why aren’t more countries around the world lining up behind the NATO alliance? How will this event shape global economic, political, and military alliances in the decades to come? Will Russia ever be welcome among Western nations again — and if not, do they care?

Join us online this Tuesday, Aug. 2, at 7 p.m. CDT for live lightning talks with leading experts who will discuss the current state of war and global alliances concerning Ukraine. Afterward, guests will take questions from the audience via live chat. You can join the livestream here, or request a reminder to receive an email a half hour before the program starts.
