It has been almost seven months since Russia launched a military invasion of Ukraine. Russia’s war against its neighbor has been characterized by President Vladimir Putin in both geopolitical and ideological terms – as a special military operation to denazify Ukraine and to preserve the inherent cultural unity of Russia and Europe. Ukraine and as a necessary corrective to NATO’s effort to integrate Ukraine into a Western security arrangement incompatible with Moscow’s spheres of influence approach to Eurasian geopolitics.
Debates about the causes and consequences of the Russian military war in Ukraine are central to transatlantic security and international media contexts.
