SECWAC Presents: The War in Ukraine

April 12, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Professor Marci Shore recently published an article in the Wall Street Journal (February 26/27, Review) entitled “Why Ukrainians Are Prepared to Fight”, in which she described the historical context for the war, pointing out that eight years ago the country rose up against the corruption and brutality of Russian domination, and forged a new kind of civic bond and commitment.
