Law School Radio Show to Address the Ukraine Conflict's Endgame

Scharf recording Talking Foreign Policy

Almost exactly two years ago, on Feb. 24, 2022, Russia launched a massive invasion of neighboring Ukraine. The international community responded with military aid and sanctions. The U.N. expelled Russia from the Human Rights Council and the International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin. Despite massive force, Russia failed to capture Ukraine’s largest cities or topple Ukraine’s government. The fighting has ground to a bloody stalemate with hundreds of thousands of casualties on both sides. Now, the U.S. Congress is considering cutting off aid to Ukraine and Russia is raising the prospects of peace negotiations. 

What is the likely endgame for the Russia-Ukraine conflict? In the Feb. 20, 2024 broadcast (9 a.m. and 9 p.m. EST) of CWRU School of Law's “Talking Foreign Policy,” producer/host Dean Michael Scharf has assembled a group of military, political, financial and legal experts who will be discussing how the world’s most pressing conflict is likely to conclude. Guests include former Chief Adviser to the Prime Minister of Ukraine Daniel Bilak, highly decorated Major General (ret.) Darrell Guthrie, head of the prestigious Scowcroft Group Kevin Nealer, President of the Public International Law and Policy Group Paul Williams and Cleveland State’s Distinguished University Professor Milena Sterio.
