Room ABC

Speaker: Dr. Jeremy Stephen Roethler Sr. Lecturer, University College & Dept. of History Coordinator, General Studies Degree Program at Texas State University

Under President Vladimir Putin, Russia is projecting an autocratic model of governance abroad and working to undermine the influence of liberal democracies, namely along Russia’s historical borderlands. Russia caused an international uproar in 2016, when it interfered in the U.S. presidential contest. But Putin’s foreign policy toolkit includes other instruments, from alliances with autocrats to proxy wars with the U.S. in Georgia, Ukraine and Syria. How does Putin conceive of national interests, and why do Russian citizens support him? How should the United States respond to Putin’s foreign policy ambitions? 

Come join the group! A light meal will be served at 5:45pm followed by a viewing of the DVD from the FPA.ORG. Our guest speaker will then address us, followed by a question and answer period.
