    Arguably, the balance of power in world politics currently turns on the Ukrainian fight for freedom against Russian aggression. For over a year the Ukrainians have been fighting for their very survival as a nation-state against a terrorizing neighbor. The West has been sending military aid, but is it enough?

    Oleksii Chuiko, a native of Kyiv and a graduate of Cal, is an authority on the current conflict as well as a leading spokesman for the Ukrainian diaspora in California. During his 16 years in the United States, Oleksii has actively taken part in community, non-profit and political causes, but nothing is closer to his heart than defending the freedom of his motherland.

    Check-in: 6:00pm | Speaker Begins: 7:15pm | Dinner served: 6:35pm.
