112. UKRAINE: HOW DID IT COME TO THIS?
Samir Puri, Olga Onuch, Richard Shirreff
Saturday 1st July 19:30 (60 Min)
In this timely discussion, Olga Onuch, Samir Puri and General Sir Richard Shirreff will take a long view of Ukraine’s history, its place not only in Europe’s story but also in Russia’s and the Soviet Union’s. From the Revolution to the Holodomor, and from the Second World War through to the break-up of the USSR and the arrival of democracy, they will examine how it came to be that Russia invaded and began a brutal war with Ukraine in February 2022.
