In challenging times for Ukraine, despite public appraisals following the second anniversary of the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the ten-year mark of the Russian annexation of Crimea on 18 March 2024.
This webinar will provide a deep dive into current developments in Ukraine and show how Europeans can best support democratic structures, and hence a European path for Ukraine, whilst ensuring that it prevails militarily – as both will ultimately determine victory against Russia.

Against the backdrop of increasingly negative news coverage on the state of Ukraine’s democracy, and the challenge to secure military and financial support in Europe and the United States, our panelists will provide a positive outlook on the societal transformations ushered in by ten years of war and the accelerated changes brought about by the invasion, and the war’s impact on the Ukrainian military. Together with our panel of experts, we will discuss: 

  • What do European leaders need to do to best support democratization?
  • How can military support be structured in a unified and coordinated way?
  • Ultimately, how can Europe be the best partner to Ukraine to win the war?
