The Future of Russia

Sydney Writers' Festival

The Future of Russia

Be it the annexation of Crimea, military action in Syria or meddling in foreign elections, Russia is increasingly emboldened on the world stage despite harsh sanctions and international censure. But what lies ahead for the nation and its economy and citizens after some two decades of Vladimir Putin’s ironclad rule? Award-winning Putin biographer and {The Future is History} author Masha Gessen joins Moscow-based correspondent for {The Telegraph}, Alec Luhn, to examine the state of affairs with journalist Monica Attard.

Masha Gessen is supported by Rowena Danziger AM and Ken Coles AM.

Duration: approximately 60 minutes, no interval
