By: Katherine Adams

University of Houston-Clear Lake’s Diplomacy Institute hosted a Diplomatic Lecture Series event this week, featuring the Ukrainian Consul General, The Honorable Vitalii Tarasiuk. His presentation, entitled “An Update on the Current Situation of Ukraine’s Fight Against Russian Aggression,” focused on the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the suffering of the Ukrainian people, and why the tides have recently turned in favor of Ukraine.

The event was followed by a moderated Q&A session, and culminated at a reception held near an exhibition of photography depicting the ravages of the violence, procured by The Right to Peace Foundation, a Houston nonprofit organization that advocates for victims of war.

The photos will remain on display outside the Neumann Library in the Bayou Building until Nov. 4 as part of Houston’s FOTOFEST Biennial 2022.
