How to Support Ukraine in Resisting the Russian Invasion?

On 22 March 2022, the Ukrainian Think Tanks Liaison Office in Brussels and the Polish Institute of International Affairs Brussels Office are organising the debate “How to support Ukraine in resisting the Russian invasion?”.

Date: 22 March 2022 (Tuesday); 10:00 – 11:30 CET (Belgium) (9.45 – welcome Coffee/Tea).

Venue: Press Club Brussels Europe, Rue Froissart 95 – 1040 Brussels (with online participation option).

Ukraine has been heroically confronting the Russian attack for almost a month now. The Western community has provided Ukraine with comprehensive support, especially in terms of weapons deliveries and humanitarian assistance, and stepped up its sanctions against Russia. Should the EU do even more to support Ukraine? What additional options are still on the table to further help Ukraine resist the invasion?
