April 14, 2022 at 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM


Since February 24, 2022, when the Russian invasion of Ukraine began, approximately 10 mil. Ukrainians have been displaced, with more than 4 mil. sheltering in the neighbouring European countries.

This event is hosted by the Institute of European, Russian and Eurasian Studies (EURUS) and the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence at Carleton University.
