This month marks two somber anniversaries for Ukraine: ten years since Russia’s invasion of Crimea, and two years since Russia launched its full-scale assault. Ukraine’s situation is grim as Kyiv struggles to sustain Western support while facing a much larger occupying power.

But there are reasons for optimism. Ukrainians are committed to their cause. It is within their power to defeat Russia and liberate their lands—but only if their international partners continue to support them.

Join Hudson’s Center on Europe and Eurasia for a conference to commemorate ten years of occupation and two years of full-scale war. The event will examine the importance of the war for the European order, take stock of the conflict with senior Ukrainian and allied voices, and chart a path forward for the transatlantic community.
