About the Event

Russia  has once again proved that it is not a reliable partner to secure a  future of shared interests and values.  Russia has for years waged a  "Hybrid War" inside numerous countries of the west, including the U.S.,  and Putin has now ordered the invasion of Ukraine.  While the ultimate  outcome of Russia's ware against Ukraine is now far from clear, what we  do know is that Putin is a kleptocrat and apparently enjoys unlimited  freedom within his own country to use Russia's military and other  resources without challenge.  This presentation will examine Russia's  new way of war, its invasion of Ukraine, and how the west has reacted.    We will examine the strengths and shortcomings of democracies as they  contend with a Russia that uses every available resource to get Putin's  desires.
