Russia-Ukraine war

  Posted on: February 25, 2022

Russian leader Vladimir Putin launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022, causing Europe’s largest humanitarian crisis since WWII. Putin has defended his actions, falsely claiming that Russia needed to “defend itself” against Ukraine.

Dr. Wilson Bell, TRU associate professor of history and politics, is available for interviews on the modern history of Russia, particularly related to Stalin/Stalinism, the Gulag, human rights issues and the interplay between politics, society and culture.
