A New World Order? How Russia’s War in Ukraine Changes Geopolitics
Russia’s war in Ukraine has entered its eighth month. Despite the successes of the Ukrainian Armed Forces and major unrest in Russia, there is little indication that Vladimir Putin will soon end the war. What explains his motivations, and how have Ukrainians fought back? How is Ukraine distinct from Russia, and why can’t Putin accept its independence? Emily’s presentation will explain the background of the invasion, look at Ukraine’s history, and discuss potential future outcomes for Ukraine and the world. Enjoy Ukrainian pastries and a hot beverage, and browse the Ukrainian crafts for sale after the lecture. Event is free. All donations go to Dobro New England to provide humanitarian support for the people of Ukraine.
