Russia’s full-scale military invasion of Ukraine has caused nearly three thousand civilian deaths, with more than seven million people internally displaced and another five million Ukrainians fleeing to neighboring countries. The ongoing war has raised fears of a protracted conflict escalating beyond the borders of Ukraine, drawing NATO, the United States, and Europe into a regional war. While the Ukrainian government continues to fight to secure its sovereignty, the severe economic and social impact of a prolonged war has weakened global support for Ukraine, resulting in calls for a negotiated halt to the hostilities.
Join Women In International Security (WIIS) and WIIS Germany on July 7 at 10:00 AM (EDT)/16:00 (CET) for a virtual briefing on the situation in Ukraine. Experts will speak to the strategic implications of the war in Ukraine and give a broader account of the impact on the Ukrainian citizenry amidst Russian disinformation efforts.
