About this course:
In late 2021, Russia built up troops and heavy artillery on the border with Ukraine. On February 21, Russia officially recognized the two self-proclaimed states in the Donbas, and sent troops to the territories. Three days later on February 24, Russia launched a large-scale invasion of Ukraine. The invasion received widespread international condemnation, including new sanctions imposed on Russia, triggering the 2022 Russian financial crisis. In this course, Ms. Boorstin interviews J. Arch Getty, a UCLA Distinguished Research Professor and expert on Russia. Professor Getty provides insight and predictions about this international crisis and address members’ questions.
