The realities of war: On the ground in Ukraine


As Vladimir Putin’s Russian troops immorally invade a sovereign nation, and with more bloodshed on the horizon, we spoke to Kevin Flanagan, SFL’s Director of Training & Engagement, currently living in Ukraine, about Putin’s power grab and the Ukranian mindset.

We also spoke to Eglė Markevičiūtė, Students For Liberty’s Alumni and Vice-Minister of the Economy and Innovation of the Republic of Lithuania about what people in the rest of the world can do to help Ukraine. In short: be skeptical about what you see online, report social media accounts that appear fake, and consider donating money to those who are fighting for freedom and peace.

Putin’s behavior goes against every value that SFL holds as an organization and we denounce his aggression against a sovereign people.
