Democracy for Russia? (Lecture @ Kennebunk Free Library)
November 12, 2014 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm EST
Maine seasonal resident, Dr. Michael G. Roskin, will provide an overview of recent Russian history to today’s events and ways that the situation there might play out in the near future. He will address three important questions: Why did the Soviet Union collapse? Why did Russian democracy fail? And, does the Ukraine war portend Europe-wide conflict? These topics are sure to make for a lively Q & A!
Professor Roskin’s talk – Democracy for Russia? – will take place on Wednesday, November 12, at the Kennebunk Free Library from 6:30-8:30PM. This event is free and open to all.
