Marie Yovanovitch said she had no idea what she was doing when she wrote her memoir, but the number of people who turned out to see her in Santa Fe reflected how compelling they found her story.

Yovanovitch, 63, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, discussed her book, Letters from the Edge, at a forum Wednesday hosted by Global Santa Fe, an organization previously known as the Santa Fe Council for International Relations.

She shared her thoughts about the war Russia is waging in Ukraine, a country where she spent three years as an envoy before former President Donald Trump removed her.
