Foreign Policy Research Institute A Nation Must Think Before it Acts The State of Play in Ukraine

The State of Play in Ukraine

May 12, 2022 | 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm | Eurasia Program

About the Event

The Russian invasion in Ukraine has bogged down, forcing President Vladimir Putin to wrestle with a series of questions about how to continue the invasion. The United States and its European Allies have pledged open-ended military support for Ukraine, allowing President Zelensky to replace equipment, and retain critical capabilities to defend the country. To discuss the latest developments in the war,  Rob Lee, FPRI Senior Fellow, and Michael Kofman, Research Program Director in the Russia Studies Program at CNA, will join moderator Aaron Stein.
