President Vladimir Putin’s bid to overturn the post-Cold War international settlement in Europe and the crisis over Ukraine have forced many Western governments to reappraise their approach to Russia. Russia in turn faces mounting internal difficulties. The event will present the findings of a new Chatham House Report The Russian Challenge, which argues that the consequences of Moscow’s current policy will be increasingly dangerous for Europe, and costly for Russia. The report’s authors will discuss how far those costs will rise, whether Russia can bear them, what will happen if it cannot, and how the West should respond in the near and longer term.
