3 week class on either Tuesday or Wednesday, 10:00 am and noon (Will not meet on June 14 or 15)
This quarter we’ll review the major developments in the Russo-Ukrainian War that began on February 24th. At present, it’s difficult to predict the course content. Hopefully we’ll be analyzing the peace process and the way sticky issues like war crimes, repatriation of refugees and territorial adjustments were resolved. Unfortunately, it’s more likely that the War will still be going on. In that case, we’ll examine the status of negotiations, the cohesiveness of the NATO alliance, the impact of on-going sanctions on Russia, China’s actions in support of Russia and the military situation on the ground.
