Dear Members and Friends

We are delighted to confirm that the next speech in our lecture series will be given by Dr Andrew Foxall, Director of Russia and Eurasia Studies Centre, and Director of Research at the Henry Jackson Society on 20 March 2019 at 7pm in the Jubilee Room, House of Commons, Westminster SW1A 0AA.

His talk is entitled, ‘Russia’s Annexation of Crimea, Five Years On‘. Using the fifth anniversary of Russia’s seizure of Crimea as his starting point, Dr Foxall will discuss what motivates Russia’s foreign policy, highlight the threat that Russia poses to the West and the rules-based international order, and suggest what the West can do in response.

We hope you will be able to join us, and please feel free to invite your friends and colleagues to this event.

If you would like to attend, please RSVP to secretariat@britishukrainiansociety.org at your earliest convenience. Due to tight security and the potential for queues, we would advise you to allow at least 30 minutes to enter Portcullis House; further instructions and a map will be sent in due course to those who RSVP.
