What should Europe do to deter Russia’s aggression? Rubryka invites for online discussion

A Latvian President, Edgars Rinkēvičs, says that Europe is failing Ukraine. Europe must act now. But is Europe really up to it? Tim Snyder says the Russia-Ukraine war is unique in terms of only one country resisting, but it's a world war in many ways.

On February 28th, Rubryka will reflect upon two years of the biggest war in Europe since 1945 and what changes it has brought to Europe regarding security architecture and defense policies.

In particular, we will discuss:

  • Ukraine's and EU's perspectives on Russia's war against Ukraine and how the war might end
  • Latvia's perception of the Russian war against Ukraine and its impact on policy-making and civil society
  • Estonia's foreign policy, given the security dynamics in Eastern Europe.

Featured speakers: 

  • Kaimo Kuusk, former Estonian ambassador to Ukraine, Estonian ambassador to Lithuania
  • Maryna Smahina, Senior Editor at Rubryka, University of Helsinki PhD candidate
  • Imants Lieģis, former Latvian ambassador to France, former Latvian defense minister
