As President Biden prepares to meet with President Putin on June 16, the territorial disputes in Ukraine — including Russia’s annexation of Crimea and its support for separatists in the Donbas — form the greatest single area of disagreement between the United States and Russia, and the greatest potential cause of conflict between them. The Quincy Institute is therefore glad to announce the publication of an important paper by Senior Research Fellow on Russia and Europe Dr. Anatol Lieven, setting out the basis for a negotiated solution to the conflict in Ukraine.
To mark the paper’s launch and to discuss its recommendations, Dr. Lieven will be joined on a panel by two distinguished experts on Ukraine and U.S.-Russian relations, Dr. Nicolai Petro of University of Rhode Island, and Emma Ashford, senior fellow at the Atlantic Council. The Quincy Institute’s Kelley Beaucar Vlahos will moderate.
The discussion will take place on Tuesday, June 15, at 12 pm ET.
