Join us with Olena Lennon, Ph.D., Adjunct Professor of Political Science and National Security at the University of New Haven, and Eastern Ukraine native, for a follow up on her last talk about Russia's invasion of Ukraine. As the state of the war changes daily, Olena's talk will summarize recent developments so far, present lessons the war poses, and project what may occur in the future as this war unfolds. The session will close with a question and answer session with audience members. You can find a list of reference materials and aid organizations assisting the people of Ukraine here.
