16:00 - 18:00

Moderated by Anne Applebaum, Director of the Transitions Forum, Legatum Institute.

The European Council on Foreign Relations and the Legatum Institute hosted a small off the record briefing with Vladimir Ashurkov, Sergey Kolesnikov and Olga Romanova. The discussion debated where next for the Russian opposition after the protests—how far can the anti-Putin resistance go? What is the opposition strategy? How deep is corruption at the top of the Kremlin? Has the Kremlin already started to lose Russia’s youngest and richest? How should the UK and the EU respond to a more restless Russia?

The closed-door meeting served to debate the recent political developments in Russia and Britain’s role in fighting corruption in Russia.
