Political science professor David Faris

Political science expert David Faris is available to speak on the political repercussions for Putin’s escalating invasion of Ukraine. Faris has spoken and written about the Russia-Ukraine conflict for The Week and on The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell.

“The worst crisis in post-war Europe demands nothing less than concerted, dramatic action aimed at Moscow's total isolation, and the time to start is now,” said Faris.

Professor Faris can explain:

  • What the invasion means for U.S. foreign policy.
  • Historical context for today’s conflict in Ukraine.
  • How U.S. sanctions on Russia could impact the economy.
  • How Biden’s decisions on Ukraine could influence the 2022 midterms.
