Russia’s full-fledged invasion of Ukraine in 2014 has upended the geopolitical and geoeconomic scene for Europe. The war is first and foremost a military conflict with dire consequences for the people of Ukraine, but it is increasingly taking on an economic dimension with layers of transatlantic sanctions against Russia, and Moscow’s use of energy and food resources to weaken western resolve. As the conflict drags into what promises to be a long and difficult winter, we are pleased to invite you for a unique conversation with one of the leading defense and security experts in the United Stated, former US Ambassador to NATO, Lt. Gen. Douglas Lute.
In a 60 minute conversation with Ambassador Lute, we will explore the following critical questions:
  • What is the outlook for the war and how we might expect the conflict to end?
  • What is the outlook for continued US leadership in support of Ukraine and European defense?
  • What is the impact of the conflict on the defense industry and other critical economic sectors? 
  • How European governments might prioritize scarce resources to maximize security and prosperity?
