Resource Page on Russia’s War Against Ukraine

The Shevchenko Scientific Society in the U.S. is responding to Russia’s war against Ukraine. We are collecting resources that shed light on this crisis, including articles, interviews, and videos. The resources collected here are meant for a broad readership and include works written by our members and non-members alike.

The Society will continue to hold roundtables and events about current affairs, as a special supplement to our regularly scheduled program of academic events and conferences. The first of our series on current events, “The Ukraine Crisis: Behind the Headlines,” was held on February 7, 2022 and featured experts Oxana Shevel, Margarita Balmaceda, Andreas Umland, and Volodymyr Dubovyk. A recording of the event has been posted to our YouTube channel.

The second special roundtable “The Russian-Ukrainian War and the Geopolitical Situation” was held on March 9. Speakers included Adrian Karatnycky, Valerii Kuchynskyi, and Mykola Riabchuk. Markian Dobczansky moderated. Video now available on YouTube.

The third special roundtable “Women and Russia’s War on Ukraine” was held on March 14. Speakers included Olena Nikolayenko, Olga Boichak, Christina Olha Jarymowycz, Tamara Martsenyuk, and Jessica Zychowicz. Video now on YouTube.
