Putin’s Agenda: From Post-Cold War to Today 7:00-8:30 pm
Monday, January 13, 2020, 7:00 PM until 8:30 PM
La Rive Party Room
110 Bank St. S.E.
(612) 455-3329 (p)
Join us as Nick Hayes, professor of history and chair in critical thinking at St. John’s University, discusses Russian President Vladimir Putin’s agenda, from dismantling the post-Cold War international order to the destabilization of the American political order today. He’ll profile Putin and his rise to power in the crisis and collapse of Russia in the 1980s and ‘90s, followed by his election as president in 2000 and reassertion of Russian power in Eurasia and Eastern Europe. In recent years, Putin has undertaken bolder moves deploying cyber-warfare on a global scale and specifically targeting the United States, while sowing discord and conflict into American politics and foreign policy.
