“Talking Foreign Policy” episode broadcast on Russia-Ukraine conflict endgame

Almost exactly two years ago, on Feb. 24, 2022, Russia launched a massive invasion of neighboring Ukraine. The international community responded with military aid and sanctions. The U.N. expelled Russia from the Human Rights Council and the International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin. Despite massive force, Russia failed to capture Ukraine’s largest cities or topple Ukraine’s government. The fighting has ground to a bloody stalemate with hundreds of thousands of casualties on both sides. Now, the U.S. Congress is considering cutting off aid to Ukraine and Russia is raising the prospects of peace negotiations.

What is the likely endgame for the Russia-Ukraine conflict? In the Feb. 20 broadcast (9 a.m. and 9 p.m.) of Case Western Reserve University School of Law‘s “Talking Foreign Policy,” producer/host Dean Michael Scharf will assemble a group of military, political, financial and legal experts to discuss how the world’s most pressing conflict is likely to conclude. 

The guests will be:

  • Daniel Bilak, former chief adviser to the prime minister of Ukraine;
  • Highly decorated Major General (ret.) Darrell Guthrie;
  • Keven Nealer, head of the prestigious Scowcroft Group;
  • Paul Williams, president of the Public International Law & Policy Group; and
  • Milena Sterio, Distinguished University Professor at Cleveland State University.
