Dr. Sherri Replogle, instructional assistant professor in the Department of Politics and Government, was interviewed March 1 by The Pantagraph about the Russia-Ukraine war. Replogle teaches a course on International Conflict and Security, and she has a research interest in the treatment of civilians in war.
The article (by Connor Wood, published March 4, 2022), emphasized the impact of Russia’s military strategy on the civilians in Ukraine and the threat to the international order posed by Putin’s disregard of international law and norms. Russia’s military strategy would likely mirror its “siege” on civilian population centers in Syria, Replogle said. The impact on civilians would likely be brutal, and the impact on the rules-based order lasting, she added.
