From the outset, Putin’s invasion of Ukraine was unprovoked, premeditated, and illegal. In this darkest of hours, the European Union has boosted its support for Ukraine and introduced, together with the United States, unprecedented sanctions against Russia including in the tech field. This clash between the rule of law and the rule of the gun is existential. Equally existential are other ongoing challenges, from climate change, to the human rights implications of new technologies, to defending democracy. Join EU Ambassador to the U.S. Stavros Lambrinidis for a moderated discussion on the ways to support Ukraine and counter Russia, and on how transatlantic diplomacy is tackling today several simultaneous global challenges.
