The Tennessee World Affairs Council and the American Council on Germany launched the “In Focus: Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine” series in January with a conversation with Ambassador John Kornblum as storm clouds gathered. The series has followed the twists and turns of the unprovoked war over the last nine months.
Now, Ukrainian forces have successfully pushed back Russian forces in the east while Russia continues to brutalize the civilian population with missile and drone strikes aimed at crippling infrastructure and energy supplies, turning out lights and turning off the heat, and weaponizing winter. Questions remain about the resilience of the West’s commitment to Ukraine — military, humanitarian, and other financial aid — and the endgame — what it will take to end the war.
The American Council on Germany and the Tennessee World Affairs Council are continuing their series of virtual events titled In Focus: Russia’s War in Ukraine. Join us for a discussion about the evolving crisis with Ambassador John Kornblum, former U.S. Ambassador to Germany.
