20 Years On: Perspectives on the Fall of the Soviet Union
The relatively peaceful fall of the Soviet Union was possibly the most geopolitically momentous event in the second half of the 20th century. Twenty years on, the fifteen successor states, Russia especially, have by and large not developed as expected. Former US and UK Ambassadors Jack Matlock and Sir Rodric Braithwaite were both in Moscow as the Soviet Union disintegrated. In this commemorative meeting, they will share personal reflections on those tumultuous events and discuss why Russia's path has been so difficult since then.
There will be a reception following this event.
LIVE STREAM: This event will be live streamed for members only. The webcast will be made available here at 18:00 on Thursday 3 November.
