#SolidarityWithUkraine Russia-Ukraine war


As the brutal invasion of Ukraine is going into its third week, the Department of Political Science convenes a roundtable of experts on Ukrainian, Russian and Baltic politics to discuss origins of the war and the current situation in Ukraine, the reaction within Russia, and the fall-out in the Baltic States. We will be covering humanitarian aspects of the war; national class dimension, tensions and competition since Ukraine’s independence; disinformation and propaganda, the chances of elite defection and popular resistance in Russia, tensions and fears in the Baltic States, and possible ways out.
