Photos from Our Expert Panel on Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine

In March UBC Political Science hosted an event bringing together experts on Russian and Ukrainian politics and foreign policy, military strategy and the NATO alliance, and international law and tribunals to discuss why President Vladimir Putin decided to invade Ukraine, NATO’s response and the likelihood of rolling back the invasion or creating a ceasefire, the war’s likely effects on Putin’s grip on power, and the prospects of holding Russian officials, including Putin, accountable for war crimes being committed during the conflict.

Below is a gallery of photos from that event. Thanks to our experts, alumni UBC, the Faculty of Arts, and our students who helped to make the event possible.
