On October 21, the Transatlantic Security Initiative hosted a group of Russia experts from Sweden’s Defense Research Agency for a private discussion on European Security and Russia. Over the last few years the Swedish Defense Research Agency has released a number of reports on European security and the Russian challenge, including Russian military transformation, Russian soft power, Moscow’s energy policy, and the use of information operations. The session, moderated by Director of NATOSource and Scowcroft Center Senior Fellow Jorge Benitez, convened some of Europe’s best experts on Russian foreign and defense policy to share transatlantic perspectives at a time of increased tensions between Russia and the West.
