“Europe is not Putin’s personal chessboard on which he can move the pieces at will.” Following the annexation of Crimea and military aggression in parts of eastern Ukraine, Russia’s President Putin is making far-reaching demands of NATO. If these are not met in full, Putin threatens military/technical consequences. The situation is escalating and a large-scale Russian invasion is becoming increasingly likely. This will not only affect Ukraine, but all of Europe. Europe must now show unity and strength. Events in the Ukraine conflict are unfolding almost hourly. Open discussion with Ben Burgers, President of our organisation European LIberals for Reform in an insightful evening on the situation in the Ukraine. Our European Liberals for Reform vice-President Piotr Azia hosted this free event.
