Tensions between Russia and Ukraine: How likely is another war?

| Eurasia Program

About the Event

Over the past few weeks, Russia has built up significant military forces near its border with Ukraine. U.S., European, and NATO allies have warned that this is a major cause for concern, and many fear that Russia may be preparing to invade Ukraine. Recently Ukraine's president Zelenskiy said he had uncovered a coup plot and is preparing for an escalation with Russia. What's behind Russia's actions and what might actually happen? How likely is another conflict between Russia and Ukraine? Join FPRI's Eurasia Program as we discuss answers to these questions and what might happen next.
