Join us for a captivating discussion as Rüdiger von Fritsch, drawing on his extensive experience as Germany's Ambassador to Russia (2014-2019), sheds light on the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine.

From the annexation of Crimea in 2014 to the recent full-scale invasion in 2022 and subsequent developments, von Fritsch will offer unique insights into the situation. Having authored a memoir recounting his tenure as ambassador (Russlands Weg. Als Botschafter in Moskau, 2020) and a thorough analysis of the international repercussions of Russia's invasion (Zeitenwende. Putins Krieg und die Folgen, 2022), von Fritsch brings a wealth of knowledge to the discussion.
