| June 13, 2023

CIPHER BRIEF INTEL REPORT — During a recent visit to Kyiv centered around The Cipher Brief’s Kyiv Economic and Security Forum, a small Cipher Brief delegation met with a variety of representatives from government, business, and civil society, who conveyed a consistent and compelling message of unity and determination to win the war that Russia started in 2014 with the invasion of Crimea, and since February 24, 2022, when it launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

The delegation consisted of Cipher Brief Expert Gen. David Petraeus (Ret.), Cipher Brief CEO & Publisher Suzanne Kelly, Cipher Brief COO Brad Christian, historian and author Lord Andrew Roberts, Russia Fellow Natalia Bugayova from the Institute for the Study of War, and myself. 

The goal of The Cipher Brief forum was to engage in conversations with U.S. businesses and investors and their potential Ukrainian partners and government officials, to build concrete economic and technical support during the war and after. More than 50 US business professionals traveled to Kyiv to attend in person and to interact with approximately 80 Ukrainian guests from a variety of sectors.
