40] – On Thurs., Dec. 15 at 11:30 AM, check out the Carnegie Endowment's Is Russia-Ukraine a Forever War? Russian aggression against Ukraine continues with no end in sight. While Ukrainian military offensives have shifted the momentum and recaptured significant swaths of territory, entrenched Russian positions and winter conditions have slowed the tempo of the fighting. Meanwhile Russia’s air and missile strikes have crippled Ukrainian infrastructure and exacted a severe price on civilians. Where is the war headed? Is the resolve of the U.S.-led coalition still strong? How has the conflict affected Putin’s domestic support? And what options are available to the Biden administration other than simply staying the course? Hear from Andrew S. Weiss, Carnegie Endowment and Ekaterina Schulmann, Moscow School of Social and Economic Sciences. Register at
