Ukraine in Crisis
Please join the Center for Strategic and International Studies for a conversation with Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) and Senator Rob Portman (R-OH). Earlier this month, Senators Shaheen and Portman led a bipartisan delegation to Ukraine that met with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, reaffirming the U.S.’ commitment to Ukraine as it faces an increasingly belligerent Russia. Dr. Seth G. Jones, Senior Vice President and Director of the CSIS International Security Program, will moderate a discussion on the steps that might be taken to support Ukraine and deter a Russian incursion. The discussion and subsequent Q&A session will explore the important role Congress plays in providing critical defense capabilities to Ukraine and standing firm against the Kremlin.
Senators Jeanne Shaheen and Rob Portman have long been leaders in the Senate, holding Russia accountable for its malign activity against the U.S. and Ukraine. Senator Shaheen is the Chairwoman of the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on Europe and Regional Security Cooperation and a member of the Senate Ukraine Caucus. Senator Portman is a Member of the Subcommittee on Europe and Regional Security Cooperation and a Co-Chair of the Senate Ukraine Caucus. Together they have stressed the need for bipartisan cooperation on this issue and for the United States to stand up for a secure, democratic, and free Ukraine.
This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
