    Graphic of the first Indo-Pacific Dialogue in-person event at Tokyo with the Ukrainian Ambassador to Japan

    On February 24th, 2022, the sovereign state of Ukraine was invaded by Russia. Ukraine, with support from Western partners, continues to fight for its freedom and the preservation of the Post-WW II rules-based order that has brought peace, development and stability. The use of force to change borders and enforce a sphere of influence in Europe has transformed the European security landscape but it also has had implications for the Indo-Pacific region.


    In order to better understand the invasion of Ukraine and its implications for the Indo-Pacific and beyond, this Indo-Pacific Policy Dialogue in-person event is co-hosted by JICUF and Ritsumeikan Asia-Pacific University (APU) to invite Sergiy Korsunsky, Ukrainian Ambassador to Japan to share his views. Participants will gain a better understanding of the invasion of Ukraine and its implications for the Indo-Pacific and beyond. The discussion will be moderated by Dr.Stephen NAGY, YCAP’s Director of Policy Studies. Closing remarks will be addressed by Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University(APU) co-host representative.
