NYC Russia Public Policy Series: Russia in the Time of COVID-19

May 14, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join us for the first ever virtual meeting of the New York-Russia Public Policy Seminar, a forum co-hosted by the Jordan Center and Columbia University’s Harriman Institute.

The COVID-19 pandemic has swept across the world with alarming speed, but impact and reactions have varied tremendously across countries. Our panel, which includes two Moscow Times reporters who have been covering the pandemic, will assess the impact COVID-19 has had on Russian society, including vulnerable populations, as well as Russian politics.
