Human Dignity, Christian Reconciliation, and Russian-Ukrainian Rapprochement: For a United Europe

As conflict with Russia continues, a plan for long-term, lasting Ukrainian reconciliation must address an interrelated but dual dimension: the international reconciliation between Kiev and Moscow and the internal national reconciliation within Ukraine itself. While the war in Ukraine is largely regarded as the result of external military aggression, there are components of an internal division between competing national visions for the country.  
Bishop Borys Gudziak, leader of the Ukrainian Catholic community in France, reflected upon these struggles and competing interests, as well as offered his suggestions for a peaceful path forward. Georgetown University President John J. DeGioia introduced the event.

This event was co-sponsored by Georgetown's Office of the President and the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs.
