Russia, What Drives it, and its Modi Operandi

DATE: December 9, 2020 6:00 pm

Background

How should America deal with Russia? Should it be demonized and sanctioned, or embraced? Russia’s actions over the last 20 years have included interventions in the Baltics, Georgia, Ukraine, Syria and the South Caucasus. Additionally, it has been active in trying to sow dissent and undermine democracies in the U.S., Europe, and its near abroad. And, it is presently engaged with China selling the Chinese much needed oil and gas in return for desperately needed cash.

This webinar will discuss:

  • Russian history starting with the Czars and moving through to the present;
  • The current issues Russia is facing;
  • How Russia currently views itself;
  • The lens through which Russia sees the world, particularly the U.S., European States, States in its near abroad, and China;
  • Russia’s strategic objectives and tactics; and
  • Options for the U.S., her allies and partners in dealing with, or perhaps engaging with Russia.
