Russia in the Americas: What Now?
In light of the invasion of Ukraine, a panel of expert speakers discussed the geopolitical implications of Moscow’s increasing incursions into Latin America and the Caribbean.
Moscow’s violation of Ukrainian sovereignty raises urgent questions about the nature of Russian activities in the Americas. It puts into questions the compatibility of Russia's presence in the Western Hemisphere and long-standing efforts to build democracy. How does Russia view the Americas? What priorities is Moscow pursuing? And where do relations go from here?
Join Americas Society/Council of the Americas for an expert panel discussion to explore these issues live streamed on this page.
