Prime Time Rich Elfers' class to look at troubles in Russia, Ukraine | Green River Community College

The recent loss of Crimea to Russia and the potential loss of the eastern Ukraine are examples of a nation where geography determines its history.

Prime Time instructor Rich Elfers will be discussing why Ukraine has always been pulled either to Europe or to Russia throughout its history. Russia, Ukraine and the West have all had historic and geographic reasons for acting as they have. He will provide deeper insight into the most recent crisis as well as an understanding of the forces of geography on world affairs.
