The Impact of the War in Ukraine on Russian Civil Society: A View Inside and Outside Russia

June 7 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

As the Russian government continues to wage its unprovoked war against Ukraine, the conflict has had profound impacts on Russian civil society. Following Russia’s full-scale invasion in February 2022, millions of Russians left the country to avoid supporting the war or being conscripted into the military. With Russian civil society fragmented and located in different countries, they are searching for ways to express their resistance to the war as well as remain engaged and active with one another.

Join the US Institute of Peace and New York University’s Jordan Center for the Advanced Study of Russia for a co-hosted discussion on the impact of the war in Ukraine on Russian civil society both at home and in exile abroad. The conversation will also touch on the potential long-term implications of the war for Russian civil society and government, including in regards to relations with Europe.
