Struggling Ukraine - Olaf Koens on the war

  • Date: 25 October 19:30 - 21:30
  • Location: Nieuwspoort

In his new book "All the Ukrainians I Know", Olaf Koens, former correspondent in Russia and Ukraine, paints a picture of the war based on hundreds of encounters. As a writer he leaves geopolitics for what it is, as a journalist he cannot avoid it. Time to show some color. And therefore this special evening of Haagsch College. Could the war have been prevented? Does this herald the end of Putin? And are we perhaps also responsible for the war?

An evening with real-life stories and razor-sharp analyses. Olaf Koens is a writer and RTL correspondent. He was a reporter in Russia and Ukraine. His current location is Istanbul. Olaf wrote "War and Fair," among others; his new book "All the Ukrainians I Know" will be released on Oct. 25. Stefan de Vries moderates the evening. He is Europe reporter for Euronews and BNR Nieuwsradio, among others.
