Overview

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?

Join Americas Society/Council of the Americas for an expert panel discussion to explore these issues live streamed on this page.
