The crisis in Ukraine, beginning in late 2013, brought the world to the brink of a new Cold War, or so many suggested at the time. As Russia annexed Crimea and invaded Ukraine’s eastern regions, the EU and U.S. imposed unprecedented sanctions against Moscow as relations between Russia and the West fell to an all-time low. Russia’s actions have been understood as an attempt to unravel the international order and as revealing the Kremlin’s return to something akin to an aggressive anti-Western authoritarianism. But what did the Ukraine crisis reveal about the West? Where does the crisis leave European Union and NATO eastward expansion? Did the crisis mark the start of a new period of international order? And, two years since the crisis began, does Ukraine still matter to the West?

The Henry Jackson Society is pleased to invite you to an event with Dr Volodymyr Dubovyk that will be chaired by Dr Andrew Foxall, Director of the Russia Studies Centre at The Henry Jackson Society and co-hosted with the Ukrainian Institute, London. Please RSVP to rsvp@henryjacksonsociety.org.
