Crisis in Ukraine Thursday Sept. 18, 7PM

SKMBT_C22014082511090Ukrainian American Christina Vogel presents her up-to-the-minute research and historical background information as she discusses this timely topic with slides of information on the key players in the on-going conflict, a timeline of events as they continue to play out from the onset in November of 2013 to the present.  A variety of maps, and historical background information helps explain the actions Ukrainians took and Russia’s response, which led to the annexation of Crimea by Russia and the fighting we are witnessing today in East Ukraine.  The presentation also considers actions western nations are taking, or not taking, in the attempt to help Ukraine, while preventing a war with Russia.

Vogel, a American of Ukrainian descent describes Ukraine’s position as a “bridge between the East and the West” with a long history of appropriation and domination by other powers, and notes the vast majority of Ukrainians desire sovereignty, and to be a part of the European Union.  This program has been well received elsewhere in the region.  See story here

Information for the program is continuously updated as events unfold.  Questions are welcomed throughout the presentation, with ample Q&A time following the program.
