The collapse of the Soviet Union at the end of 1991 appeared to usher in a remarkable new era of peace and co-operation with the West. This, we were told, was the end of history: now the entire world would embrace enlightenment values and liberal democracy. Reality has proved very different.

The Henry Jackson Society is delighted to invite you to an event with Peter Conradi, author, journalist and foreign editor of The Sunday Times. He spent seven years in Moscow as a correspondent during which time he covered the collapse of the Soviet Union. Peter Conradi will reflect on the dramatic changes of the post-Soviet decades, the leadership of Vladimir Putin and relations between Russia and the West in the 21st century. He will discuss the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Yeltsin years, the last two decades – and what the advent of Donald Trump means for relations between Russia and the West.

*We will be selling copies of Peter Conradi’s Who Lost Russia on the day
for £18.99,
cash only. Please bring the correct change.*
