Experts host panel to discuss war on Ukraine with SU studentsBy / Asst. News Editor
On Feb 24, Vladimir Putin launched an attack on the country and citizens of Ukraine. In an effort to educate students about the ongoing conflict, Shippensburg University hosted a panel with some local experts. The panel, made up of three experts, included Catherine Clay, David Wildermuth and Mark Sachleben. Clay specializes in Russian history, and was a Fulbright scholar in Kyiv, Ukraine, in 1999. Clay presented some early history on the eastern European migration, and the beginnings of the Russian empire. Learning the history of these two countries can help us better understand the motives that are present today.
