Recent months have seen a series of provocative actions from Russian President Vladimir Putin. Nearly 100,000 Russian troops are amassed along the border with Ukraine, prompting fears that Moscow may be attempting to rehash its 2014 invasion. Moscow has also been developing and testing an array of new weapons systems and capabilities, including carrying out its first ever strike on a satellite in space using an earth-based missile earlier this month. Within Europe, tensions are increasing over the migration crisis on Belarus’s border with the European Union and several European leaders have blamed both Moscow and Minsk for the deepening crisis.
Join the American Security Project for an on-the-record conversation on Friday, December 3. Our guest speakers, Ambassador Steven Pifer and Dr. Evelyn Farkas, will discuss recent developments along Ukraine’s frontier, tensions between Russia and the West, and U.S. engagement with Russia, more broadly.
