Discussion about Russia in the Danube Cultural Centre

On the 27th of November 2015, the Frontline Club held the discussion ‘Putin’s Russia: the domestic political climate and power ambitions’ in the Danube Cultural Centre in Bratislava. The event took place as a part of the ‘One World’ festival (co-organizers – the civil society association ‘People in Peril’, and the Open Society Foundation - OSF).

The discussion was attended by Grigorij Mesežnikov (president of the Institute for Public Affairs), Jefim Fištejn (analyst and columnist, adviser to the President of Radio Free Europe in Prague) and Misha Kapustin (a liberal rabbi, an emigrant from Crimea living in Bratislava).

The discussion, moderated by journalist Mirek Tóda (Denník N), was preceded by showing the Russian documentary film “Srok”.

The participants of the discussion provided the characteristics of the political regime of today’s Russia, they touched upon the main trends in the domestic and foreign policy of the current Russian state. The participants paid special attention to the ability of Western countries to defend standards and principles, on which the current system of international relations is built and to resist the propaganda war, unleashed in the recent years by Russia against the West, in an effort to achieve its own strategic objectives.
