Roundtable-Ukraine: One Year After Russia’s Full-Scale Invasion
February 24 at 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
On the one-year anniversary of Russia’s all-out war on Ukraine, the Center for Slavic, Eurasian, and East European Studies invites you to join a conversation with scholars from UNC, the Kyiv School of Economics, Dublin City University, and community members with remarkable experiences to share. You will hear from a scholar on the ground in Ukraine, a displaced Ukrainian educator in NC, and an American volunteer in Ukraine. The panelists will address a diverse set of topics, including the sources of Ukrainian resilience, the successes and challenges of international support for Ukraine, Russian war crimes, the changes in public perceptions about the war in Ukraine and Russia, and the stories of animals amid the war.
Panelists include Ivan Gomza (Kyiv School of Economics), Tetyana Lokot (Dublin City University), Olena Halushka (Anti-Corruption Action Center, Kyiv), Graeme Robertson (UNC-CH), Milada Vachudova (UNC-CH), Annika Hugosson (UNC-CH), Irina Borodina (Ukrainian educator) and Dave Jernigan (Chapel Hill volunteer).
