The Long Hangover – Putin’s Russia and the Ghosts of the Past

January 23 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Please join us on Tuesday, January 23rd for “The Long Hangover – Putin’s Russia and the Ghosts of the Past” with Shaun Walker.

Shaun Walker talks about his new book, which traces Vladimir Putin’s use of history, especially victory in the Second World War, to create a new sense of national pride among Russians and fill the void left by the Soviet collapse. It looks at how this, along with a parallel process in Ukraine, led to the events of 2014 and the resurgent Russia we see today.

Shaun Walker is Moscow Correspondent for the Guardian and has reported from Russia for more than a decade.
