Columbia SIPA, The Arnold A. Saltzman Institute of War and Peace Studies, and the Harriman Institute of Russian, Eurasian, and East European Studies present Expert Panel: Putin’s Annexations and His War of Wills with the West
Columbia’s top experts on Russia, Ukraine, China, and military strategy will examine the implications of Putin’s annexations in eastern Ukraine. Key issues include prospects for an escalation of the war—including nuclear options; potential diplomatic off-ramps; Putin’s domestic challenges; and whether this war has influenced Chinese thinking about Taiwan.
