Interviews happened on television, radio and print

As Americans have tried to better understand Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and its domestic implications, local and national media have turned to Norwich University’s faculty and alumni for immediate commentary.

Lasha Tchantouridzé, a Norwich University professor and director of its graduate programs in diplomacy and international relations, has done several interviews and several media. He was interviewed by Seven Days, the Burlington, Vermont-based alternative weekly newspaper, for the March 4 edition and was on radio twice March 1, with Waterbury, Vermont, station WDEV’s “Vermont Viewpoint” program with Ric Cengeri, and Vermont Public Radio's “Vermont Edition” program

On Feb. 21, before the conflict began, Tchantouridzé, spoke to Burlington, Vermont, television station WCAX-TV, Channel 3.

In all the interviews, Tchantouridzé, a former resident of the one-time Soviet republic Georgia, gave his take on why Russia would invade Ukraine and Russian President Vladimir Putin's adamance that Ukraine be kept out of NATO.

Also in Late February, Christopher Costa, a retired U.S. Army colonel who served as the special assistant to the president and senior director for counterterrorism on the National Security Council spoke on ABC News about the conflict, also analyzing Putin’s motives.

Costa, who now directs the National Spy Museum in Washington, D.C., served 25 years in the U.S. Army working in counterintelligence, human intelligence and with special operations forces in Central America, Europe, and throughout the Middle East.

Norwich and Tchantouridzé will unpack Russia’s international motivations during the Peace and War Summit, coming March 21 to March 22 and directed by the John and Mary Frances Patton Peace & War Center.
