“Perspectives on the Crisis in Ukraine” brought together six Columbia faculty members for an expert discussion of this nation teetering between Russia and the West. A variety of issues were considered, including U.S. national security and foreign policy, Russian foreign and domestic policy, energy, economics, and — thanks to longtime Ukraine diplomat Valery Kuchinsky — an insider’s view from Ukraine itself.
