Putin’s next act

April 4, 2018 @ 9:00 am EDT

Vladimir Putin’s third term as Russia’s president was defined by a return to aggressive foreign policy, including military interventions in Ukraine and Syria, interference in elections in the United States and Europe, and a crackdown on domestic dissent. But as Russia’s economic model and political system seems increasingly stagnant, it is unclear how Putin will define his next term and his legacy.What might Putin’s fourth term hold in store for Russia and its neighbors? How should the United States and its trans-Atlantic allies handle the evolving Putin challenge? What is the state of opposition to Putin’s regime in Russia? How can Washington manage a coherent Russia policy amidst the unfolding and politically explosive investigations into Russian government efforts to influence the 2016 election?
Accordingly, the Center on the United States and Europe, in partnership with the Heinrich Böll Foundation, will host a panel discussion to address these issues and the takeaways from the Russian presidential elections.
Panelists:  Julia Ioffe, Contributing Writer, The Atlantic; Vladimir Kara-Murza, Chairman, Boris Nemtsov Foundation and Vice Chairman, Open Russia Foundation;
Angela Stent, Director of Center for Eurasian, Russian and East European Studies, Georgetown University; Nonresident Senior Fellow, The Brookings Institution;
Strobe Talbott, Distinguished Fellow-in-Residence, Foreign Policy, The Brookings Institution

Moderator:  Alina Polyakova, David M. Rubenstein Fellow, Foreign Policy, The Brookings Institution;
Following the discussion, the panelists will take questions from the audience.
Wednesday, April 4 … 9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
The Brookings Institution  … Falk Auditorium, 1775 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20036
