York Ideas event
This lecture will seek to place Putin's war in Ukraine in it's long and short term historical context. It will seek to understand the reasons behind President Putin's decision to launch the war and will offer some suggestions of the likely consequences of the war for Ukraine, Russia and the West.
Please note this event has moved to a larger venue (it now will be held in Room SLB/118, Spring Lane Building) due to popular demand.
