Russia After the Elections - Perspectives from the Opposition
The Swedish Institute of International Affairs’ (UI) Russia and Eurasia Programme, together with Östgruppen för demokrati och mänskliga rättigheter, invite you to a seminar about and with the Russian opposition. The Duma elections on 18 September confirmed the dominant role of Vladimir Putin’s United Russia party. For over a decade, political opposition in Russia has been marginalized, and opponents to Putin have been forced into exile, imprisoned and in some cases killed. Meanwhile, the opposition is also internally divided and not unified. What do the election results mean? What lies ahead?
Deputy Chair, Russian United Democratic Party Yabloko
Deputy Secretary-General, Swedish International Liberal Centre (SILC)
The seminar will be moderated by Martin Kragh, Senior Research Fellow and Head of UI’s Russia and Eurasia Programme.
