Beyond Crimea: The New Russian Empire


A conversation with:
Dr. Agnia Grigas
Nonresident Senior Fellow
Dinu Patriciu Eurasia Center, Atlantic Council


Introduced and Moderated by:
The Hon. John Herbst
Director
Dinu Patriciu Eurasia Center, Atlantic Council
 

Dr. Agnia Grigas’s book, Beyond Crimea: The New Russian Empire, examines how—for more than two decades—Moscow has consistently used its compatriots in bordering nations for its territorial ambitions. Demonstrating how this policy has been implemented in Ukraine and Georgia, Grigas provides cutting-edge analysis of the nature of Vladimir Putin’s foreign policy and compatriot protection to warn that Moldova, Kazakhstan, the Baltic States, and others are also at risk.

We hope you can join us for this important and timely discussion.
