The Historical and Political Context of the War in Ukraine
By aiden baldree
Aiden Baldree is a sophomore Government and Political Affairs major from Frederick, Maryland. Growing up, Aiden was always fascinated with military history and hopes to pursue a career in International Relations after he graduates, with a particular focus on Eastern Europe and international security. Aiden’s project is done in tandem with fellow student Griffin Leib and is intended as a study of the current war in Ukraine. The project’s objective is to highlight lessons that we may learn from the conflict. Additionally, the project aims to highlight the geopolitical and historical forces at play in the war and how they might explain current events and future problems. The project is not done as a part of a class and has been completed as an independent study.
