What We Can Learn from the Ukraine War

Tue September 26, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

*Registration required.

It is said that, in war, truth is the first casualty.  It is typically accompanied by a fog of official lies.  But no such fog has ever been as thick as in the Ukraine war.   No one not on the front lines has any real idea of what has been happening there.  Ambassador Freeman will discuss Ukraine – what has happened to it and why, how it is likely to emerge from the ordeal to which great power rivalry has subjected it, and what we can learn from this.

Chas Freeman is the author of five books and numerous articles on statecraft and the editor of the Encyclopedia Britannica article on “diplomacy.” He is a former U.S. assistant secretary of defense, ambassador to Saudi Arabia, principal deputy assistant secretary of state for African affairs, chargé d’affaires a.i. at Bangkok and Beijing, acting US commissioner for refugee affairs, and director of program coordination and development at the U.S. Information Agency. He was the principal American interpreter during the late President Nixon’s 1972 opening of U.S. relations with China.Scan to Register
