Join Carnegie for a timely conversation about the landslide victory of Ukrainian president-elect Volodymyr Zelenskiy, a comedian-turned-politician, and the myriad of challenges facing Ukraine. April 26 also marks the 33rd anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster, an event which played a central role in the formation of Ukrainian national identity, a topic that once again is at the forefront of the country’s extremely dynamic domestic politics.

Copies of Serhii Plokhii’s recent book, Chernobyl: The History of a Nuclear Disaster, will be available for purchase at the event.
