Please join the Atlantic Council for a freewheeling discussion entitled Looking Ahead at the Next Presidential Term in Russia on Monday, March 19, 2018 from 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Atlantic Council Headquarters (1030 15th Street NW, 12th Floor, West Tower Elevators).
Few doubt that Vladimir Putin will be re-elected to a fourth presidential term on March 18, but there are many questions regarding what that election outcome will mean for Russia’s future. Putin’s main competitor, Alexei Navalny, was barred from participating and has called for a boycott. While a widespread boycott is unlikely, the number of recent protests suggest that political dissatisfaction is growing among at least a well-organized minority. Many questions also remain about where the next Putin Administration will take the Russian political system, economy, and foreign policy.
The Atlantic Council will host a discussion on what's next for the Russian government and population during the new presidential term.
