Public Forum: The Ukraine War— Where Is It Heading?

Wednesday, June 12, 6:30pm

Livestreamed on YouTube and in-person at Forbes Library

20 West St., Northampton, MA


Join us in person or on YouTube for a discussion on the future of the war in Ukraine. Two speakers with opposing views will address the questions: Should the U.S. continue arming Ukraine to defend its sovereignty, protect its democracy, and defeat Russia? Or urge Ukraine to negotiate a settlement with Russia before it risks losing even more soldiers, territory, and critical infrastructure, and risks escalating the conflict into a direct confrontation between the US/NATO and Russia?


Speaking In Favor of Current U.S. policy toward Ukraine will be John Feffer of Amherst, author and Director of the Foreign Policy in Focus project of the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington DC.
