Ambassador Paula Dobriansky discusses "Where is Russia Headed?"

Wed., Apr. 13, 2016 | 12:15pm - 1:45pm

John F. Kennedy School of Government - Belfer Building, Weil Town Hall, Room BL-1

Russia is headed for a very difficult period which possibly includes economic and political collapse.  International sanctions along with the decline in oil and gas prices and lack of modernization have taken a devastating toll on Russia's economy.  Parliamentary elections in September 2016, if marked by voting irregularities, could spur major demonstrations across the country.  Meanwhile, Russia's global ambitions have not changed substantially.  What has changed, however, is the nature of Russia's engagement in key regions, as well as the international community's response.

Where is Russia Headed?  It's future is in question.

Lunch will be provided.
