Hot Buttons, Cool Conversations: The U.S. Role in Russia’s War on Ukraine

Date Thursday, May 18, 2023
For Ages

It's been more than a year since Russia launched its devastating invasion of Ukraine. The conflict has challenged the world order and fueled geopolitical and economic uncertainty around the world. We examine the U.S. role in the War in Ukraine, providing more than $30 billion in military aid since the conflict began, but stopping short of deploying American forces. We will ask our panel of experts how to continue to support Ukraine without inching closer to a direct U.S.-Russian confrontation and if we are at risk of World War III. A portion of the ticket sales will go to ongoing support of the JCC Dnipro, Ukraine.
