This subcommittee hearing will examine Russia’s interventions in Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova and the status of those conflicts. Members will have an opportunity to ask expert witnesses about the humanitarian and security implications of these interventions as well as about what the United States can do to mitigate Russia’s destabilizing influence and preserve the sovereignty of our partners in the region.
