On Soviet invasion in August 1968 and its contemporary echoes

On June 6, 2018, Grigorij Mesežnikov took part in a public debate in Bratislava Half a century since invasion and occupation of Czechoslovakia: What is the world today?, which took place in the Liberal House within the series “Foreign Policy Talks”. IVO president debated with Jaroslav Naď, political analyst and director of the Slovak Institute for Security Policy (SSPI), and Martin Klus, political scientist and MP, who moderated the discussion.

In his contribution, Grigorij Mesežnikov addressed three themes related to the events of 1968 in Czechoslovakia: What Prague Spring and its suppression meant for the then USSR?  How today, 50 years after the invasion of Soviet troops into the CSSR, Russia’s citizens see these events? How the Czechoslovak year of 1968 and its broader contexts are instrumentalized in current Russia’s foreign policy, domestic politics and state propaganda?
