Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine

March 22, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Registrations are closed for this event

Russia has launched a significant military invasion of Ukraine, one of its neighbors to the southwest, a major escalation to a conflict that began in 2014.  As the situation develops, many of us are scrambling to understand.  Why is Putin pursuing war with Ukraine? What are the historical origins of the conflict? What triggered this recent military advance?  What is, or should be, the role of NATO, the EU, the U.S.?  Should we or will they become involved militarily?  How effective are non-military actions, such as sanctions or freezing assets?

On Tuesday evening, March 22, beginning at 6:30 pm, the library will host an in-person program featuring Connecticut-based historian Arthur Gottlieb to discuss questions such as these.

Arthur N. Gottlieb, LCSW, CSA, served in the United States Coast Guard for 17 years and is a local historian whose special expertise is political and military history.  For the past sixteen years Mr. Gottlieb has refocused his professional efforts towards reaching out and addressing the growing needs of aging veterans and their families.  Mr. Gottlieb maintains a private practice as a Counselor and Certified Senior Advisor in Norwalk, CT and offers Pro-Bono counseling services to soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

Registration is required for this free, in-person program, and space is limited.  To sign up, click the Register link or call the library at 860-693-5800.  Canton Public Library is located at 40 Dyer Avenue, Canton, CT.
