About the Event
The British government has responded in an outstanding way to the crisis in Ukraine. The ongoing refugee crisis began in Europe in late February 2022 after Russia's invasion of Ukraine. More than 6.8 million refugees have since left Ukraine, while an estimated 8 million people had been displaced within the country by 3 May.
Many questions are raised by the conflict: what’s at stake? what lies behind Russia’s thinking and what might happen next? We hope to discuss some of these topics and receive the latest update from Brooks on this call.
Brooks Newmark is a former Member of Parliament and Minister. In the last few months he has helped more than 7000 people reach safety from Ukraine. He has raised funds to provide buses moving in and out of Ukraine, taking people from the most severely bombarded cities to safety in central Europe.
