It’s been nearly two years since the Russian invasion of Ukraine captivated the world’s attention. However, after months of warfare, this conflict has fallen to the back of many Americans’ minds – despite it continuing to wreak havoc the lives of innocent Ukrainian and Russian civilians. To delve deep into the past, present, and potential future of this deadly dispute, Martha is joined by Ukrainian author and Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent for The Wall Street Journal, Yaroslav Trofimov.
They discuss the complex past between Russia and Ukraine that led to Putin’s invasion, how the United States continues to act in response to the war, and what inspired him to write his most recent book, ‘Our Enemies Will Vanish,’ which chronicles Ukrainians’ refusal to surrender their independence despite the odds.
