War in Ukraine: Perspectives from Kyiv and Moscow
April 11 at7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Dr. Emily Channell-Justice (Harvard Ukrainian Research Institute) and Cris Martin (Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies, Harvard) join us to put the war in Ukraine in perspective, provide facts surrounding the ongoing ground war, and address questions of how we got here and how the conflict might end. Since Russian forces invaded Ukraine on February 24, 2022, Ukraine has seen significant destructive attacks and loss of life, courageous responses from both Ukrainian military and citizenry, and a deep humanitarian crisis that has seen millions of Ukrainians flee the country and even more become displaced within Ukraine. Inside Russia, massive financial impacts of the war on the Russian economy and people and the Putin government’s restriction on protest and the media have caused wide-spread flight by Russian citizens. Chanell-Justice and Martin will bring their deep understanding of both Ukraine and Russia to this discussion.
