A Year of War, Tears and Resilience

Event Format

*Please note: This event will now be held virtually.*

Russia invaded Ukraine one year ago, February 24, 2023. Since then, we have been watching aghast at the violence unleashed. Ukraine’s commitment to resist aggression has been a source of inspiration for many, not least of all its own population. How can we make sense of senseless war? Can Ukrainian resolve be sustained for as long as the war lasts? Our panelists will help us clarify what the war has cost (or not cost) Russia and Putin, how Ukrainians have been united by a common cause, and what Europe and the United States should do in a second year of war.


This event is co-sponsored by the Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies and the Ukrainian Research Institute at Harvard University.
