Petreans are invited to join Selwyn College fellows, students and alumni for an online event with the Master in coversation with Roger Mosey, Master of Selwyn College.

In May 2015 Bridget Kendall gave the annual Ramsay Murray lecture at Selwyn entitled Russia and the West – lessons from the Ukraine crisis.  Six years later, tensions between Russia and Ukraine are once again dangerously strained.  To help us understand the background to the current crisis, Bridget Kendall will be providing an assessment of the current stand-off and then taking a wider view of Vladimir Putin’s leadership and the kind of country Russia is becoming. After the presentation, there will be a live Q&A via the "chat" function on Zoom.
