do the two presenters have a view on the economic sanctions versus the body bags coming back to Russia as influencing the end of the conflict?
Bryan Emerson, H '83
56:56
Regarding Ukraine's relationship with the west:
Bryan Emerson, H '83

Any comments about the percentage and number of Ukrainians emigrating to/worker visas to the west (mostly Poland) vs to Russia in recent years?

Why does Putin think that Ukraine will benefit from being pulled into Russia’s orbit? Much more prosperity seems possible if Eukraine aligns with the west…
Sharon Rippey P'12, Alumni&Parent

As Mike, Bryan and Rand have done- please add your questions or comment in the chat to Everyone and we'll turn to them after David's remarks.

Is there any chance that Pope Francis and Patriarch Kiril can play a role in a constructive, positive, peaceful outcome?
Bryan Emerson, H '83
01:05:21
What is the relevance of NATO's discussions with Ukraine about possible NATO membership DESPITE the agreement between NATO and Russia in early 1990's that NATO would NOT expand eastward toward Russia? (was that agreement signed?)
james harmon
01:05:24
How important is the coexistence in Ukraine of Orthodox and Eastern Catholic Churches?
Mike
01:05:30
Will the west accede to any ceding of territory to Russia as part of a settlement or are we looking at an euro version of Afganistan
Merrill Fliederbaum
01:05:32
How should we regard Russia's nuclear sabre rattling of the last few days?
Shoshana Keller
01:06:08
I was very surprised the other day to see that over 150 Russian Orthodox priests have signed a public letter against the war. Historically, the church is subordinate to the state. Patriarch Kyril is a close Putin ally, so I expect nothing from him.

What is the likelihood of other former Soviet Republics trying to weaken their dependence on / connection to Russia? What is the likelihood that Putin will try to ‘reclaim’ these former parts of the Russian / Soviet empire?
davidgersch
01:06:42
Is there any counterweight to Putin in Russia? For example, is it possible that the military is opposed to the invasion (which seems to be mostly exposing its limitations)?
Mike
01:06:51
easy on the 70 age cohort! LOL
Dan Heintz '21
01:10:08
To what extent do you think the foreign policy and/or military leadership in Russia align with Putin’s beliefs on Ukrainian connections and his strategic decisions?
Elaine Page (TN) she/her
01:10:32
Why target civilians? Does Putin think that fear will make them loyal to Russia if he takes over the government? If they are indeed all the same people, why is he trying to kill them?
Tom Trombone P’25
01:11:56
What’s the likelihood of a “palace coup?”
Philip Fraccola '08
01:16:27
What if this doesn’t quickly end?
Sarah Hiner
01:16:53
Professor Rivera said that the sanctions generally don’t work.. but right now we haven’t gone all the way to cutting off all funds as their oil is still being sold to Europe and the US. If we cut off their oil sales, and restarted production in the US, would that be a more effective stranglehold on the Russian economy ?

Any comments on this view:
Peter Lotto '75
01:26:08
We have Russian friends with whom we cannot discuss Putin. It is all about the Imperial Nostalgia. Not far removed from American Manifest Destiny. You just know it's true.
Shoshana Keller
01:27:41
CUtting off Russian oil and gas sales would be the last big blow to their economy that we could inflict. However, it would also harm people in Europe who heat their homes with Russian gas (esp. Germany). However, it may come to that.
Bryan Emerson, H '83
01:27:57
Attacking Ukraine from multiple directions does not appear intended to "bring Ukraine home to Mother Russia." It appears intended to shock the rest of the world. If that was the strategy, what does Putin anticipate as gains?
Bryan Emerson, H '83
01:34:47
thank you, Dr. Keller.
Paul F X Schneider '68

Heaven protect us from charismatic narcicists with a perverse 'vision' and the power to implement it. Remember the two decades of the 1920s+
