Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 has changed the world. From precipitating a refugee crisis throughout Europe as eight million Ukrainians fled their homes, to increased nuclear fears, the threat of famine in Africa and social and economic unrest in Britain, the impact has been seismic and global. What lies ahead? Editor of The Jewish Chronicle Jake Wallis Simons is joined by Ukraine expert, author and The Economist’s former Kyiv correspondent Anna Reid, historian, writer and director of the Ukrainian Institute London Olesya Khromeychuk, and former Foreign Secretary and Secretary of State for Defence Malcolm Rifkind.
