Russia’s war of aggression is the latest and most violent episode in a standoff with the West over Ukraine and the post-Soviet space, and dealing with the challenges posed by Russia will demand an integrated, interdisciplinary approach from the United States and Europe. Our expert panel discussed the implications of the war in Ukraine for the future of transatlantic security, taking up three questions in particular: What can the transatlantic alliance do for Ukraine? How can the transatlantic alliance be strengthened at the present moment? And why have Europe and the United States struggled to persuade the so-called “Global South” about the stakes of the war in Ukraine?

The event brought together two Humboldtians and German Chancellor Fellowship alumni—Mr. Sam Denney, Senior Research Analyst at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, and Professor Michael Kimmage, Professor of History at the Catholic University of America. They were joined by Ms. Kateryna Bondar, Associate Fellow, Project on Prosperity and Development at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and assessed the impact of the Russian invasion of Ukraine on transatlantic relations and global politics more broadly.
