"Where in the World is Viktor Yanukovich??"

An info session on Ukraine ft Human Rights Watch

Thursday, March 6, 2014

Do you find yourself wondering what has happened/is happening/will continue to happen in Ukraine? The news has consistently been flooded with stories of the Ukrainian revolution and the president (? impeached? maybe? no.... viktor?) of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovich.

This is a lovely opportunity provided to you by the Russian Club and Student Government, an opportunity for you to ask questions like:
What was the political background of Ukraine before this revolution?
How was it kickstarted?
What the heck is happening with Viktor Yanukovich???
And other questions, as entry level or advanced as you'd like to ask. 

We have a lovely panel consisting of:
RACHEL DENBER- Deputy Director, Europe and Central Asia Division, HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH
http://www.hrw.org/bios/rachel-denber

OLEG MININ- Visiting Assistant Professor of Russian 

GENNADY SHKLIAREVSKY- Professor of (Russian and Soviet) History 

We are also awaiting confirmation from a member of our Human Rights faculty.

IT WILL BE FUN
