Join the International Foundation for Electoral Systems, in collaboration with the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) and the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), for a discussion on refortifying Ukraine's democratic and electoral foundations. The conversation will delve into the key steps Ukraine can undertake now to prepare for free and fair elections once Russia’s invasion ends, while also addressing strategies for Ukraine to safeguard itself against disruptive Russian disinformation narratives targeting its democracy and the postponement of elections.
