Chatham House

Hosted by Bronwen Maddox, Director, Chatham House, former Chief of MI6 Sir John Scarlett will discuss ongoing developments in Ukraine, giving an in-depth insight into how we got here and what Russia might accept.

Over six months into the war, have the Kremlin’s goals changed since Western intelligence communities first publicly warned of Putin’s invasion plans at the beginning of 2022? What were Putin’s intentions behind Russia’s recent wave of annexations?

Has Putin’s recent escalation of the war in Ukraine affected Western resolve? How likely is the use of nuclear weapons by Russia? And how are intelligence agencies working together to confront this ever-evolving security landscape?

This event is only open to Chatham House Partners and Major Corporate Members as well as selected giving circles of Chatham House. If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Linda Bedford.
