Book Talk: "The Lands in Between: Russia vs. the West and the New Politics of Hybrid War"

Sept. 18, 2019, 3:00-4:00pm (RSVP requested)
5th Floor Conference Room, Wilson Center, 1300 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, Washington, DC

Join the Wilson Center's Kennan Institute for a talk with Mitchell Orenstein on his latest book, "The Lands in Between." Russia’s hybrid war on the West has disrupted politics in the United States and throughout Europe. Its effects are most visible in the "lands in between," the vulnerable countries that lie between Russia and the European Union and are subject to competing geopolitical influences. In the context of his latest book "The Lands in Between," Mitchell Orenstein will discuss how geopolitical conflict in this region has polarized politics into pro-Western and pro-Russian camps, how some political leaders are benefiting from this divide and what implications this may have for the West.
