Digital Program: Russia’s War Against Ukraine: A Wake-Up Call for the West

03/24/2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Join the Mystic & Noank Library with Olena Lennon, Ph.D., Adjunct Professor of Political Science and National Security at the University of New Haven, and Eastern Ukraine native, for this contextual information session about the headlines we’re all reading. As Russia’s brutal full-scale war on Ukraine continues, featuring indiscriminate bombardments of Ukraine’s cities, residential buildings, hospitals and schools, many have struggled to understand why Putin has resorted to such gruesome means and what this war achieves. Olena Lennon’s talk will attempt to shed some light on the historical roots of the war, why it has escalated, what might happen next, and why the world should care.
