This event is sponsored by the Center for Intermarium Studies and the Kosciuszko Chair of Polish Studies at IWP.
About the Lecture: This lecture will explore the military history of Russia, going back to pre-imperial times, in order to analyze the Russian Federation’s recent actions toward the United States, NATO, and Europe. Russia has historically viewed war in a different light than the West, and this historical context is vital to determining how to respond to recent belligerent actions. 

About the Speaker: Geoffrey Seroka is a graduate student at The Institute of World Politics, studying International Affairs. He has focused his graduate research on Russian/Eurasian affairs and has delivered two previous lectures as a part of the Kosciusko Chair’s Intermarium Lecture Series. He obtained his Bachelor of Arts in Government from Patrick Henry College in 2015.
