Russia’s War in Ukraine: Uncompromising Objectives and an Uncertain Future

June 30, 2022 | 10:00 am to 11:00 am | Eurasia Program

About the Event

Russia and Ukraine are locked in a bloody war that is hemorrhaging men and materiel at a rate unseen in Europe for over 75 years. The Kremlin’s dreams of quick victories have ended, and the conclusion to the conflict may not come soon. Whenever it’s over, this 2022 war will likely lead to changes on the continent as consequential as those of 1989 or 1945. What is the current state of the war, four months into the invasion? What strategic direction may Russia and Ukraine choose going forward? How likely is a negotiated settlement?
