It is May of 2019, and Russia and Ukraine appear to be on the brink of war. Since the annexation of Crimea in 2014, interactions between the two countries have become increasingly hostile.

Note: This committee has already been held in 2019, during Jackrabbit MUN I. Background guides for 2020 will be released soon.
