It is twelve months since Russia invaded Ukraine - not just an unwarranted attack on the borders of a sovereign nation in contravention of international law, but an egregious assault on the global rules-based international order.

One year on, an expert panel will review the key developments in Ukraine and Russia, as well as the shifts in the Western perspective on the war between these two countries.

How has Ukrainian society reacted to the existential threat to its country? Is Ukraine stronger now than a year ago? Are Western sanctions having sufficient effect on Russia's will to continue the invasion? Has Russian society accepted and embraced the war? How did Western countries, including Australia, view Ukraine's chances of success in defending its sovereignty at the start of the invasion and are they committed to helping Ukraine win the war now?

AIIA Victoria invites you to join this panel discussion with Stefan Romaniw, Senator David Van, Petr Kuzmin and Richard Iron who will provide answers to these and other questions from the Ukrainian, Russian and Australian/Western perspectives.

AIIA VIC gratefully acknowledges the Walter Mangold Trust Fund for its support of our young members.
