U.S. Ambassador (retired) Steven Pifer on "Ukraine: Russian Interference and How the U.S. Can Bolster Ukrainian Security"
Wednesday, May 23, 2018
Since the collapse of the USSR, no post-Soviet state other than Russia has commanded more attention from American policymakers than Ukraine. Steven Pifer will discuss the history of U.S. - Ukraine relations, what worked and did not work in America’s approach, and how Washington might more effectively promote its goal of helping Ukraine become a stable, independent, democratic state.
