Russian Foreign Policy: Threats and Scenarios


Wednesday 7th March 2018 at 6pm Venue: Houses of Parliament, Committee Room 8


With global tensions between East and West reasserting themselves and new geopolitical factors further complicating conflicts around the world, Russian influence is a matter of serious international concern.
