  1. Thanks! This was a great introduction and clarified much!
    So many these days are jumping to conclusions, like he said in his talk.

  2. I started to watch this thinking I would only spend a few minutes on it, but I ended up watching the entire lecture. I learned five things I didn’t know in the first 10 minutes. History is complex and fascinating. To see Ukraine as the heart of so much human history is eye-opening to say the least. Thank you for posting this. I hope many people are moved to watch.

    • Jennifer, thanks for the comments. I agree with you and is probably one of the most intellectually informative commentaries on the war I have heard to date. Spread the word! Thank you!

  3. Just like jen215– I also watched the whole lecture–enlightening! I pray that the Yale students would gain lots of insight from later discourse.
