Nicolai Petro, ‘The Tragedy of Ukraine’
February 14, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
What are the origins of the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine? What are Russia’s strategic objectives, and why did the Minsk Accords fail? Based on his experience and observations as a Fulbright Scholar in Odessa, Nicolai Petro will address these and other questions in relation to the deep domestic roots of the conflict, now in its fourth year.
Petro is a professor of political science and the Silvia-Chandley Professor of Peace Studies and Nonviolence at the University of Rhode Island.
