WBOI Presents: The Russian Invasion of Ukraine

050422_Russia Ukraine
WIKICOMMONS

Our news team has spoken with community members originally from Russia and Ukraine since the invasion began in February. This week, we are going to hear analysis from academic sources. James Toole and Ann Livschiz represent the Purdue University Fort Wayne departments of political science and history respectfully.

One question that we did not get to during our time would have focused on reaction from immigrant communities. Ann wanted to share a link with the northeast Indiana community to one organization based out of Chicago providing aid to Ukraine.

Our music is by Mark Waldick, Noah Campodonico, Kurt Roembke, and Hope Arthur. Our web producer is Loyal Vandenburg. Our production assistants are Monica Blankenship, Steve Mullaney, Kyle Norbeck, Diahmynd Thomas, Mikaela Veltum, and Sydney Wagner.
