Virtual Event | Breaking the Black Sea Blockade: How NATO Can Stop Russia’s Assault on the World’s Food Supply?

This event will premiere on this page at 12:00 p.m. EDT, Monday, June 20. Register for the event here.

Russia is regaining the initiative on the ground in Ukraine, but its greatest success has been at sea. By blockading Ukraine’s Black Sea ports, Moscow is holding millions of tons of grain hostage and has shut down the largest sectors of Ukraine’s economy. Faced with a global food crisis, NATO leaders are now seeking a settlement to lift the blockade that may surrender Ukrainian territory and sovereignty to Russia. Join Hudson Institute Senior Fellows Bryan Clark, William Schneider, Peter Rough, and Mike Doran for a discussion of how the United States could help Ukraine break the blockade and how NATO strategy and posture should change to address Russia’s Black Sea belligerence going forward.
