Join the World Affairs Council for an engaging discussion.
Six months into Russia’s second invasion of Ukraine, there are few signs it will end anytime soon. The West for now remains unified around Ukraine and Russiacontinues to struggle in a war it expected to win quickly.Kyiv and Moscow both seek a military victory, but the cost of such a victory will be staggering. The West’s support for Ukraine—including the Biden administration’s latest $3 billion security assistance package—has been crucial to Ukraine’s perseverance but the West’s continuing support is not guaranteed, especially if the war drags on. Russia’s goals—including Ukraine’s demilitarization and neutrality if not outright capitulation—have not changed even as Russia makes few gains on the battlefield. Can there be a negotiated settlement—and what role should the West play, if any, in trying to end the war?Join the World Affairs Council on September 13 as Ambassador Steven Pifer, former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, and George Beebe, former chief of the CIA’s Russia Analysis Group, discuss the possibilities and perils of a negotiated end to the war in Ukraine. This program will be hybrid, with the option to attend in person or over Zoom. Ambassador Pifer will be joining by Zoom, while Mr. Beebe will be in-person.
