Ukraine’s defence of freedom: Aspen Institute

6 June 2022, 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The Russian-Ukrainian war has been waging for over three months, with no clear end in sight. The cost to Ukraine’s people, infrastructure, and economy has been catastrophic. Having failed to capture Kyiv early in the war, Russia has revised its aims – shifting focus in this second phase of the war to the eastern Donbas region. As this next phase intensifies, Ukraine will be even more dependent on Western military aid.

In this special dialogue in partnership with Aspen Kyiv, we will discuss the situation on the ground in Ukraine. We will hear the personal stories from Ukrainian’s currently fighting on the front line and examine key questions on what Ukraine needs for this next phase. Are Ukraine’s allies doing enough? Is it possible to find a peaceful solution?

Moderated by:
Penny Richards – 
CEO of The Aspen Institute UK


Anton Drobovych – Head of the Ukrainian Institute of National Memory, currently on the front line with the Ukrainian armed forces

Lesya Vasylenko – Ukrainian MP and Co-Chair of Ukrainian British parliamentary friendship group

Andriy Zagorodnyuk – former Minister of Defence of Ukraine

Dasha Zarivna – Advisor on communications of the Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, founder of the Vector business media and content studio, and the Charitum social networking platform
