American BMD, Russian Iskanders and a New Missile Crisis

Chatham House, London

Russia and Eurasia Programme


Professor Yury Fedorov, Associate Fellow, Russia and Eurasia Programme


The debate over Ballistic Missile Defence, primarily between Russia and the US but very much a European concern, has not evaporated with the 'resetting' of relations with Russia. Certainly European countries are divided, but there is also a debate in Russia beyond the Kremlin, with experts and even military staff split over the threat perception. This roundtable will explore the various Russian scenarios ensuing from US Missile Defence options.

Attendance at this meeting is strictly by invitation only.
