Russia’s parliamentary elections have delivered an increased majority for the United Russia party, but the low turnout hinted at voters’ disillusionment with the political process. This event will analyse Russia’s political scene in the aftermath of the parliamentary elections and key trends to watch ahead of the presidential elections in 2018. 

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
