US-Ukraine Security Dialogues XIII-XIV

The Russian-Ukrainian War – A Initial Overview


March 2 – 3, 2022


US-Ukraine Security Dialogues XIII-XIV: The Russian-Ukrainian War – A Initial Overview, constituted a two-day (March 2-3 2022) webinar event, comprising eight-panel discussions and four highlight focus sessions.

Six of the panel discussions were dedicated to assessing Ukraine’s ability to cope with the unfolding Russian invasion in the classical security dimensions: land (regular/territorial); sea/maritime defense; air/air defense; intel/cyber warfare; information warfare; energy & infrastructure safety.

The remaining two panels examined Ukraine’s capacity to engage in “irregular/insurgency warfare,” if deemed necessary. Two of the highlight focus sessions were devoted to considering why Ukraine’s security matters enough – to its neighbors and the world at large – to merit serious military assistance in time of need.

The other two focus sessions would concentrate on the means by which Ukraine might attain the stated assistance.
