Putin’s Rule: Siloviki and Kleptocrats
July 31, 2018 @ 3:00 pm
Please join the Atlantic Council for an event entitled Putin’s Rule: Siloviki and Kleptocrats, on Tuesday, July 31, 2018 from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Atlantic Council headquarters (1030 15th Street NW, 12th Floor, West Tower Elevators, Washington, DC 20005).Over the past eighteen years, Vladimir Putin has perfected a peculiar style of rule in Moscow. A product of the KGB, Putin quickly appointed many of his siloviki colleagues to senior positions in the government shortly after coming to power. Once in office, his associates enriched themselves by looting state resources and seizing vulnerable private resources. The quest for economic gain also opened the door to cooperation between senior government officials and organized crime. The Atlantic Council will bring together a panel of experts for a discussion entitled Putin’s Rule: Siloviki and Kleptocrats. Speakers include Dr. Anders Åslund, Ms. Elizaveta Osetinskaya, Dr. Louise Shelley, and Dr. Brian Taylor. The panel discussion will be moderated by Ambassador John Herbst. We hope you can join us for this timely discussion.
