The ongoing crisis in Ukraine reveals the importance of religion in the post-communist situation both within Ukraine and in Vladimir Putin's geopolitical positioning of Russia against the West, recently dubbed "Putinism." An international panel of experts will speak to the complicated role that religion is playing in the tension between Ukraine and Russia, and the way in which religion is being used both to construct and resist a new East-West divide.
