Recent events in Ukraine indicate that the crisis may be escalating into civil war, with the new administration in Kiev attempting to maintain order as pro-Russian rebels vigorously defended by Russian President Vladimir Putin, seize city after city. While the international community considers action in Ukraine, the debate continues: Will U.S. sanctions against Russia’s powerful elite make a difference? Is NATO prepared to defend Ukraine? How much of a role will the energy industry play in deciding the strategy of the western world powers?

Join this timely discussion on the future of Ukraine with Dr. Michael Horowitz, Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Pennsylvania.
