Ukraine’s Waning Odds: A Virtual Conversation with Ted Galen Carpenter

Join us as we host an in-depth conversation on Ted Galen Carpenter’s provocative cover story for the March/April issue on the situation in Ukraine.  Making use of a comparison between the early years of the American Civil War and the first year of the Russia-Ukraine war, Dr. Carpenter warns against unwarranted optimism on the part of the West.  He argues that the structural disadvantages faced by Ukraine, like those of the Confederacy, do not bode well for their long-term success.
