Luke Harding | Inside Russia’s War on Ukraine
Fri 18 Nov 2022 | 6:00pm - 7:00pm
When Russia invaded Ukraine in February 2022, the world was stunned by the epochal scale of the assault, and by what it made clear: The Kremlin wanted nothing less than a new world order.
Award-winning investigative journalist Luke Harding presents Invasion, his gripping chronicle of the war that changed everything. Reporting on the ground in Ukraine through the initial months of shock and heartbreak, and having warned correctly about Putin’s dark and adventurist ambitions, you won’t want to miss Harding’s analysis of the war’s consequences for Kyiv, Moscow and the world.
In conversation with historian and writer Dr Olesya Khromeychuk.
