Russia Invades Ukraine: Disruption of the World Order?

In a recent column in the Wall Street Journal, Walter Russell Mead writes: "Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin has claimed his place in history. Not since Hitler attacked the Soviet Union in 1941 has a European leader committed an act of aggression as brutal or as nakedly cynical as Mr. Putin’s utterly unprovoked attack on Ukraine. He has made himself an international outlaw and turned the great nation of Russia into a rogue state.”
But the criminal nature of Russia’s war and the justice of the Ukrainian cause does not guarantee that Putin’s war will fail. Whatever the outcome in Ukraine, it is likely that the Russian war of aggression will reshuffle the post WWII world order and threaten The United States's global leadership.
In this panel sponsored by OSUN and partners at Bard College, Walter Russell Mead alongside Frederic Hof, Malia Du Mont, Maksimas Milta, and Allison Stanger will seek to put the stakes of the Russian-Ukrainian War in context and offer ideas for how the United States and the world can respond. Moderated by Roger Berkowitz.
