On Wednesday, 15 December 2021, New Strategy Center organized the third debate of the series dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the disappearance of the Soviet Union.
„30 Years Since the Dissolution of the USSR. The Consequences for Russia” focused on analyzing how the Russians went through the entire process that led to the dissolution of the USSR, which for them meant ”glasnosti și perestroika” and the reforms started by Mihail Gorbaciov. At the same time, the discussion targeted the first years of the new Russian Federation and Russians’ hopes for the evolution of their own state, as well as how it came to the present Kremlin leader Vladimir Putin to believe that “the disappearance of the USSR was the biggest geopolitical cataclysm of the 20th century”.
The conference was broadcast live online, and registration is available below:
