Russia’s violation of Ukrainian sovereignty late Friday reminds Americans that we live in a dangerous world. Russia now controls the Crimean Peninsula, but the struggle for control over the region is far from over.
The United States has supported the Ukrainian dream of independence and transition to democracy and markets since the collapse of the Soviet Union. As one of the largest investors in Ukraine, the U.S. has real economic and geopolitical interests in Ukraine’s future.
As the U.S. and its allies are weighing their response, please join us for a discussion on the future of the transatlantic alliance, the impact on the global economy, and the way forward.
