Virtual Event | How the United States Can Help Defend Ukraine

This event will premiere on this page at 2:00 p.m. EST, Thursday, February 3. Register for the event here.

With Russia on the brink of invading Ukraine, the United States and its allies are scrambling to prevent hostilities without acceding to Vladimir Putin’s impossible demands. Given the recent examples of Russia’s expansionist intentions—the 2008 Georgia invasion and 2014 Crimea annexation—shouldn’t the West have been better prepared for the current crisis? What are America’s current options, and what measures should the United States take if Putin does invade? Please join Hudson Institute Senior Fellow Michael Doran for a discussion with former Commanding General, United States Army Europe Ben Hodges on the measures America can take to protect Ukraine’s independence and territorial integrity.
