Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch Talks Support for Ukraine at RCLA’s Town Hall


Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch took the Van Wezel stage in Ringling College Library Association’s Town Hall series Monday morning to assess the current state of the war between Ukraine and Russia and to stress that American aid for Ukraine is “not just the right thing to do, it’s also the smart thing to do for our national security.”

Yovanovitch, who served as ambassador to Ukraine from 2016 to 2019, is the second in the speaker series lineup this season. Prior to serving as ambassador to Ukraine, she had also served as U.S. Ambassador to the Kyrgyz Republic and the Republic of Armenia.
