On February 24, 2022 Russia invaded Ukraine, setting in motion a brutal, bloody war that has left tens of thousands of people dead and millions forcibly displaced. A year later, Ukraine is still standing, defying expectations that it would quickly fall to a more powerful Russian military and reclaiming key portions of territory it lost at the outset of the invasion. But as the war wears on, resolution remains elusive, and a negotiated peace is all but off the table. We’ll look back on the conflict and hear reflections from experts and Ukrainian nationals who joined us on Forum when the war began.
