War on Ukraine: What we know of the invasion

Experts discuss recent events unfolding in the war on Ukraine.

Members event, Panel
8 September 2022 — 6:00PM TO 7:00PM

Since Russia launched a full-scale military invasion into Ukraine on 24 February 2022, fighting has caused almost 3,500 civilian deaths and internally displaced almost eight million people, according to the United Nations.

The conflict has forced another five million Ukrainians to flee to neighbouring countries, most of whom have arrived in Poland.

As Vladimir Putin warns Russia has barely started its campaign in Ukraine and the war turns into a war of attrition, this event gives an update on the humanitarian, military and geopolitical concerns of the conflict:

  • How is the international community supporting Ukraine?

  • How can Ukraine avoid a looming hunger catastrophe as a result of Russia’s blockade on Ukrainian grain?

  • What is the role of Belarus in the conflict?

  • Is Russia considering invading other neighbouring countries?

This event is part of Chatham House’s ongoing work on The Future of Conflict.
