Past Virtual Event: Dispatch from Ukraine: Assessing the state of the war

The war in Ukraine is nearly one year old and the prospects for peace appear remote. Separated by the Dnipro River, both sides seek incremental gains during winter. DEFP Director of Grand Strategy Rajan Menon recently traveled to Ukraine for a second time to observe the war’s latest developments.

This livestream event will provide insight into how the battlefield looks today and impressions of the military, political, and economic challenges facing Ukraine. How will the next phase of the conflict unfold for Ukraine, Russia, and the United States? What will it take for Ukraine to hold the territory it has recaptured in recent months? How should the United States adjust its policies in anticipation of a potential Russian offensive and continued escalation?
