Join the Watson Institute for a screening of clips from the upcoming documentary Iron Birds, followed by a panel discussion. The distinguished panel of scholars, filmmakers, and policymakers seeks to identify and explain Ukraine’s geopolitical significance and strategic importance in fostering stability in Eastern Europe, which is not just a matter of regional concern but a critical global imperative. They will discuss the multifaceted nature of Ukraine’s challenges, ranging from security threats to economic vulnerabilities.  Moderated by Watson Senior Fellow Lyle Goldstein (https://home.watson.brown.edu/people/faculty/senior-fellows/lyle-goldstein), the panel will feature Iron Birds producer Aaron Kaufman; Jared Malone, Executive Director of Project Victory (https://www.projectvictorynonprofit.org/about); Eric Swalwell (https://swalwell.house.gov/), U.S. representative for California’s 14th congressional district; and Colonel Alexander Vindman, former Director for European Affairs for the U.S. National Security Council.
