A recap and video of this event is available here.

Russian troops are amassed along the Ukrainian border and the Pentagon has warned that they have sufficient combat power to take cities and substantial swaths of territory in Ukraine. President Biden says the United States and its allies are looking to ward off “the most consequential thing that’s happened in the world, in terms of war and peace, since World War II.” What options does the West have? What is motivating Mr. Putin? What is the situation on the ground in Ukraine?

Please join the American Security Project (ASP) on Friday, February 11, for a conversation with Vivian Salama, national security reporter at The Wall Street Journal. Salama will share her perspective from recent reporting on the ground in Ukraine and discuss the origins of the crisis, the latest developments on the Russia-Ukraine border, and where we go from here.
