This February, Vladimir Putin started a war against Ukraine. Heavy artillery, missile strikes, and bombs targeted civilian areas, destroying housing, hospitals, and orphanages. There are millions of refugees and many thousands of casualties. Putin bears full responsibility for this invasion, but the actions of the international community have been too little, too late in fighting authoritarianism in Russia. This panel discussion will examine the bloody consequences of enabling Putin in Ukraine and beyond, and seek to find strategies for overthrowing the Putin regime.
