Speaking from her government office in Ukraine, Elizabeth Savchuk, Ph.D. of Law, will talk about the Russian invasion of Ukraine, showing maps and photos. Dr. Savchuk is the head of Vinnytsia Regional Council and personally witnessed Russian bombs destroy her home town. She will discuss violations of human rights, mistreatment of military prisoners, and displaced Ukrainians trying to survive with no homes, no work and no resources. 

The discussion will be moderated by William Jeffries, an American who has been regularly driving truckloads of food, medicine and clothing into Ukraine. He is one of many international volunteers helping distribute supplies to orphans, wounded soldiers and displaced refugees. He will be speaking from his temporary location Warsaw, Poland.
