Russia, Ukraine, and Crimea: Why the Conflict?

Start Date: Tuesday, February 11, 2020   |   Time: 6:00pm
Location Solana Beach Library

What is the reason for the current territorial disputes between Russia and Ukraine? Who has the most convincing claim to eastern Ukraine and the Crimean Peninsula? Why? What do Nikita Krushchev and Josef Stalin have to do with it? Could similar territorial disputes arise elsewhere in the former Soviet Union? Have they already? Dr. Philip Pryde is a Professor Emeritus at SDSU and will address these questions in this program. Dr Pryde has written three books about the Soviet Union and has spent time in 13 of 15 former Soviet Republics.
