Since the start of the war in Ukraine, journalist Julia Ioffe has emerged as one of the most prominent, incisive and in-demand experts on the horrific conflict. 

She is a regular guest on cable news, frequently popping up to do hits on CNN and MSNBC. She’s provided analysis on CBS’s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” and on PBS’s “Frontline.” She speaks on the radio and on podcasts, and sometimes appears live on stage. Recently, a crowd of people packed into the Comedy Cellar in New York to see her participate in a policy debate about whether the U.S. and NATO were responsible for the war in Ukraine.
