#142: "4am Kyiv was bombed" - A Diplomat's Reflections on the Russian Invasion of Ukraine
Show Notes

Around 4am on February 24, 2022, Russia launched a tragic attack against Ukraine that began the first major European conflict since World War II. The causes and effects of the invasion have disrupted the state of U.S. national security and global world order. Dr. Kateryna Shynkaruk, an experienced diplomat and academic who is a Senior Lecturer at Texas A&M's Bush School DC, first discusses her firsthand experiences evacuating her home country. She also shares her thoughts about the conduct of Russian President Vladimir Putin, characteristics of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, and the state and future of the conflict in Ukraine.

"UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE" - Highly recommended video feat. Dr. Shynkaruk and former Bush School Dean (and F&FC guest) Gen. (ret.) Mark Welsh
