Putin and the Pandemic: What's to Come in Russia
Like many other leaders around the world, Vladimir Putin had great plans for 2020. During this year, he hoped to lead Russia towards a position of greater global influence, and subsequently increase his own power. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has severely limited Russia’s ability to grow, as Putin must now turn to crisis mitigation and economic rebuilding. Tune in on Thursday, June 4th, from 2 PM to 3 PM EST to hear about Putin’s plans for Russia during COVID-19, when we speak with Thomas Graham, a Distinguished Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations.
