All are invited to learn more about the expected and unintended consequences and what you may not know about the war in Ukraine
Mayor Carlo DeMaria is pleased to announce the Council on Aging will be hosting a presentation titled: “The Ukraine War and Vladimir Putin, Consequences Expected and Unintended, What You Don’t Know But Should” by author, speaker and television personality Henry Quinlan on Tuesday, July 11, 2023 at 12:30pm at the Connolly Center, 90 Chelsea Street.
The presentation will expand your knowledge about the war in Ukraine and examine the expected and unintended consequences the conflict has caused. Quinlan will also share information you most likely are not aware of based on his unique experience with Russia.
Quinlan has 35 years of experience in relations with the former Soviet Union and Russia including living in Moscow for five years and more than 60 trips to Russia and back since 1986 with his most recent trip being in 2018. He has visited Ukraine more than a dozen times and was interviewed by the Pentagon about a possible successor to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The highlights of his Russian experiences were being asked by former United States President George W. Bush to assist him and former First Lady Laura Bush with two projects in Moscow. The first project was a tour of a secret Soviet space research institute with Wally Schirra, who is one of the original seven NASA astronauts chosen for Project Mercury, which is the United States’ first effort to put humans into space in 1959. The second project was maintaining a 30-year friendship with former Russian ambassador to the U.N., Vitaly Churkin.
All are invited and encouraged to join us for this informative presentation. For additional information, please call 617-394-2270 to be connected to the Connolly Center.
