What Ukraine's strategy should be: Aspen Institute Kyiv held the first seminar for the Aspen Community after Russia's military invasion

During wartime, it is important to understand what the adversary is guided by when analyzing their key narratives. It is equally important to understand how Ukraine will build its future in a national and global context.

On April 21, the Aspen Institute in Kyiv held the first seminar in the classical format after the start of a Russian full-scale military invasion – “Aut vincere, aut mori: the right to be yourself”. The participants were members of the Community and alumni.

Participants with different experiences in peacetime and war searched together for the answers to topical questions. Among them were the conditions under which a peace treaty could be signed and the importance of preserving national values.

The event was moderated by Denis Poltavets, Director of Program Development at the Aspen Institute in Kyiv, and Volodymyr Fadeev, Head of the Department at Hryhorii Skovoroda Institute of Philosophy, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.

We truly thank all the participants for the deep dialogue and important thoughts!

The event was held within the framework of the Integrity and Governance project. The Integrity and Governance project is supported by a grant from the National Endowment for Democracy.
