American Academy Panel Discussion

Russia in Ukraine II: The Conflict Deepens

Vladimir Putin’s war of conquest is at the end of its second week. Russian forces are targeting civilians and laying siege to Ukraine’s major cities. Moscow still has enormous resources to deploy, as Ukrainian forces — and the thousands of citizens who have joined them — maintain an extraordinary resistance that has thwarted Putin’s goal of a lightning victory.

At the same time, morale is low in many Russian units, economic sanctions have wrought enormous damage to the Russian economy, and, expectating martial law to be imposed, many are fleeing Putin’s Russia.

In this second installment of the American Academy’s special Russia in Ukraine programming, our panel of distinguished experts examines the military, political, economic, and humanitarian dimensions of the conflict.

Confirmed panelists include:

General Philip M. Breedlove, 17th Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR), NATO, former commander, U.S. European Command

Kadri Liik, Senior Policy Fellow, European Council on Foreign Relations

Adam Szubin, former Acting Secretary of the Treasury, former Acting Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence at the Treasury Department, and former Director of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC)

The panel discussion will be moderated by Daniel Benjamin, President, American Academy in Berlin, and former Coordinator for Counterterrorism, U.S. Department of State.
