Facebook Live: Crises in the Post-Soviet Region
Join the Wilson Center's Kennan Institute for an online discussion (over Facebook Live) with Igor Zevelev on crises in the post-Soviet region. Over the past six months, a series of crises has convulsed Russia’s near abroad. There has been a popular uprising in Belarus, violence and leadership changes in Kyrgyzstan and a now-settled hot war between Armenia and Azerbaijan in Nagorno-Karabakh. Each of these cases has presented a unique set of challenges to Russia’s pursuits in its neighborhood. What has Russia’s response to these crises been and how has its standing in the post-Soviet region been affected? If there are more crises to come, how might Russia respond to them?
