Panel discussion to explore Ukrainian-Canadian perspective of Russian invasion

An upcoming panel will discuss how Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has traumatically impacted the lives of Ukrainians and their families living abroad.

The free event, presented by Brock University’s Centre for Canadian Studies, will be held online Tuesday, March 8 at 7 p.m.

Panel participants will discuss what has happened and what it means to Ukrainians, Canadians and the world. Canada has the third largest population of Ukrainians, after Ukraine and Russia, and thus has a unique and crucial interest in what is happening in Ukraine and to its people.

The panel features Irene Schumylo-Newton, president of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress — Niagara Branch; Stefan Dolgert, Associate Professor with Brock’s Department of Political Science; and Gregor Kranjc, Associate Professor with Brock’s Department of History. Director of the Centre for Canadian Studies Dan Malleck will moderate the panel.

Hosted on Microsoft Teams, the panel is free, but registration on Eventbrite is required.
