EA is partnering with EuroFile and Kremlin File for a series of podcasts and videocasts about the vital issues in European affairs and Europe’s relations with the world.

In the first conversation, activist/journalist Olga Tokariuk and former Ukrainian diplomatic and defense advisor Alexander Khara speak with co-hosts Monique Camarra and Scott Lucas about the political, military, and economic situation six months into Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

We discuss:

  • Russia’s defeat in the initial phase of its assault and its subsequent tactics
  • Ukraine turning resistance into counter-offensive
  • The possibility of negotiations
  • Ukraine President Zelenskiy’s status as a wartime leader
  • Investigation of Russian troops and officials over war crimes
