The Dangers of Premature Peace Plans in the Russo-Ukrainian War

July 25, 2023 • 9:00 – 10:00 am EDT

Please join the CSIS Project on Prosperity and Development and the CSIS Europe, Russia, and Eurasia Program, in partnership with Chatham House, for a panel discussion on proposed ideas for a long-term plan for peace in Ukraine following Russia’s 2022 invasion, and the dangers of certain peace plans.

As discussed in this new report from Chatham House, the resolution of this war will have implications for the entire European security framework. For a Ukrainian victory to happen, there needs to be a vision for peace that both ensures Ukraine’s territorial integrity and independence and inhibits Russia’s ability to continue threatening its neighbors in the future. Conditions for success have ranged from completely restoring Ukraine’s borders prior to 2014 to granting territorial concessions to Russia, and more.

With new election cycles beginning in Western democracies, many are asking what peace could look like in this conflict, and how to support Ukraine in the aftermath.

This event was made possible through general support to CSIS.
