After the Domodedovo Attack:
The State of Russian Democracy
Thursday, February 3, 2011
2:00 - 4:00PM
Walters, Satter, and PiontkovskyThe January suicide attack on Moscow’s largest airport, leaving 35 dead and over 180 injured, is the latest example of the unrest troubling Russia. Recently, thousands of pro-fascist youth rioted in the center of Moscow, attacking individuals of all ages from the Caucasus and Central Asia. Amidst increasing signs that Prime Minister Putin is preparing to return to the presidency, Russia’s most prominent opposition leader, Boris Nemtsov, was jailed and Mikhail Khodorkovksy — once the head of Russia’s largest corporation — received a second labor camp sentence on charges that The Economist described as “Kafkaesque.” Hudson Institute Russia experts Andrei Piontkovsky and David Satter examined the current state of democracy in Russia, analyzed the political ramifications of the latest terrorist attack, and looked at the future of Putin’s regime. Hudson Institute Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer John Walters introduced.
