Please join the Atlantic Council for an event entitled Understanding Russia’s Domestic Political Landscape: A Conversation with Mark Feygin and Ivan Tyutrin, on Friday, November 16, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at the Atlantic Council headquarters (1030 15th Street NW, 12th Floor, West Tower Elevators, Washington, DC 20005).
Several months after the presidential elections in Russia, Putin’s approval ratings have declined significantly. The unpopular pension reform along with a number of new proposed taxes have caused growing frustrations among the Russian population. Regional gubernatorial races that were expected to be easy wins for the ruling United Russia party instead resulted in the number of unexpected victories of alternative political forces.
At this event the Atlantic Council’s Eurasia Center and the Free Russia Foundation will host Mark Feygin and Ivan Tyutrin for a discussion on the state of Russia’s current domestic politics. The panel discussion will be moderated by Ambassador John Herbst.
