A Continent at War / Russia, Ukraine and the West An evening with Joshua Yaffa

The Theater at Amerikahaus  Karolinenplatz 3  80333 Munich

Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine last February, long-held assumptions about geopolitics and matters of war and peace in Europe have been upended. But the war has not gone as Vladimir Putin hoped, either.

Over the first year of war, Joshua Yaffa, who spent a decade living and reporting in Russia, has traveled across Ukraine—where he has also deep experience as a journalist—witnessing the war up close.What does the conflict look like for the people of Ukraine, from civilians trapped under bombardment to newly enlisted soldiers? And what do everyday Russians understand about the war and their own responsibility? What sort of end to the fighting is possible? And what kind of world will emerge in its wake?

Joshua Yaffa is a contributing writer for the New Yorker. He is also the author of Between Two Fires: Truth, Ambition, and Compromise in Putin’s Russia, which won the Orwell Prize in 2021.  He has written for the Economist, The New York Times, National Geographic, Bloomberg Businessweek, New Republic, and Foreign Affairs, where he was also an associate editor. For his work in Russia, he has been named a fellow at New America, a recipient of the American Academy’s Berlin Prize, and a finalist for the Livingston Award.
