CIC Toronto: War in Ukraine: Beyond the Headlines
April 12, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EDT
On February 24, Russia invaded Ukraine. The war is ongoing, and despite fierce Ukrainian resistance and limited Russian progress, many cities and areas in Ukraine are besieged and brutalized. Masses of Ukrainians have been forced to flee their country, and on March 23 the United States accused Russian forces of committing war crimes.
Dr. Yevgeniya Gaber, the former foreign policy advisor to the Prime Minister of Ukraine, will provide updates, discussion, and context into the war, touching on aspects including the human cost, personal stories, and the broader geopolitical context.
The event is meant to be an update for CIC members and other Canadians to hear testimony and narrative beyond news headlines from a Ukrainian expert, who will also be able to interact with CIC members or other audience members, and answer questions or delve into various issues further upon request.
