A Conversation With Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch – In Person Audience


Center for American Progress
12:00 - 1:00 PM EDT

Then-Ambassador Yovanovitch testifies before Congress.

Russia’s re-invasion of Ukraine and democratic backsliding at home and abroad pose threats to the freedom and security of the United States, its allies, and its partners. How the nation collectively responds to these foreign and domestic challenges will have lasting effects on stability and democracy around the world.

Please join the Center for American Progress for a conversation with former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch and CAP Senior Vice President for National Security and International Policy Alan Yu for Yovanovitch’s expert perspective on Russia’s war in Ukraine; President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and his leadership; the threats to democracy that she has confronted both in Kyiv and Washington; and her recently published memoir, Lessons from the Edge.
