TDC Event: “Unity in Security: US-Ukraine Dialogue”

The Transatlantic Dialogue Center (TDC) hosted an online event on May 2, focusing on the latest developments in areas critical to both nations.

What were we talking about?

Now that the debates regarding the U.S. Congress’s approval of the Ukraine Security Supplemental Appropriations Act, which comes after a six-month delay in Washington, are mostly concluded, this e-meeting explored the implications of the latest aid package.

Will this be the last aid package Congress approves for Ukraine, or can we expect further support, perhaps more focused on loans or tied to specific peace plan ideas? The discussion analyzed the impact of aid on Ukraine’s defense capabilities, geopolitical position, and ongoing war with Russia.

During the online event, President of Transatlantic Dialogue Center Maksym Skrypchenko engaged in discussions with members of think tanks and political experts from the US and Ukraine. We brought together a diverse panel of esteemed speakers, including Colonel (Retired) Ph.D., the Head of Research at the Foreign Policy Research Institute’s Eurasia Program and an Associate Professor of Eurasian Studies at the U.S. Army War College Bob Hamilton, Research Assistant at the Yorktown Institute Michael C. DiCianna, Foreign Policy and Security Expert, Deputy Chair of the Black Sea Institute of Strategic Studies Alexander Khara, and President of Transatlantic Dialogue Center Maksym Skrypchenko, who shared their insights and perspectives on the critical security issue of U.S. support for Ukraine.

A highlight of the event was the interactive Q&A session moderated by Deputy Director of the Russia Program at the Foundation for Defense and Democracies John Hardie. During this session, all the participants had the opportunity to engage directly with our panelists. Their participation and input are invaluable as we navigate these challenging times and seek to understand and support the ongoing struggle for freedom and democracy in Ukraine.
