The rupture in Russia’s relations with the West laid bare a vastly different and unsettling narrative about the post-Cold War world. From Russia’s perspective, the fault lies with the West and stems from the enlargement of NATO and the EU, the US-led interventions in the Middle East, and a perceived lack of respect for Russia. From the Western perspective, the fault lies with Russia and is the result of Russia’s annexation of Crimea, its invasion of eastern Ukraine, and its use of hacking and cyberattacks to interfere with Western democratic processes. Whatever the perceptions, it is clear that the West needs to act if it is to temper Russia’s actions beyond its borders and foster a stable security order in Europe.

By kind invitation of Bob Seely MP, The Henry Jackson Society is delighted to invite you to an event with General Breedlove, former Supreme Allied Commander Europe, NATO, who will explore where we are now, and where we need to be.
