Pulling at the Strings: Kremlin’s Interference in Elections

July 16, 2018 @ 2:00 pm

Please join the Atlantic Council and the Transatlantic Commission on Election Integrity for an event entitled “Pulling at the Strings: The Kremlin’s Interference in Elections.”For years, Russia under Vladimir Putin has engaged in activities aimed to destabilize democracy in Europe and the United States. The Kremlin employs an asymmetric arsenal, including cyber-attacks, online manipulation, and disinformation campaigns to influence the outcome of democratic elections. The threat posed by Kremlin meddling requires Western governments, civil society, and the private sector to take steps to build resilience and resistance against disinformation campaigns and interference. The event will begin with a fireside chat between Senator Mark Warner and Senator Marco Rubio. This will be followed by a strategic panel discussion focused on the Kremlin’s spectrum of asymmetric tools and capabilities to interfere in elections, as well as its tactics of disinformation. Fireside Chat: **The Hon. Mark Warner, Senator from the Commonwealth of Virginia, U.S. Senate **The Hon. Marco Rubio, Senator from Florida, U.S. Senate Moderated by: **Ms. Susan Glasser, Staff Writer, The New Yorker Panel Discussion: **Minister Natalie Jaresko, Former Minister of Finance, Government of Ukraine **Mr. Damian Collins, Member of Parliament, UK House of Commons **Ambassador Eileen Donahoe, Executive Director, Global Digital Policy Incubator, Stanford University Moderated by: **Ambassador John Herbst, Director, Eurasia Center, Atlantic Council (former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine) We hope you can join us for this timely discussion.
