When the Central and Eastern European countries joined the EU in 2004 and 2007, it was assumed that they would continue their democratic and economic transformation. Today, the region is experiencing a decline in democratic standards and governance practices at the same time as Russia’s economic grip on the region seems to have strengthened. This event presents the findings of the “The Kremlin Playbook:Understanding Russian Influence in Central and Eastern Europe," a study recently published by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in cooperation with the Sofia-based Center for the Study of Democracy.

Speakers:

Ruslan Stefanov, Director of the Economic Program, Center for the Study of Democracy, Sofia

Martin Vladimirov, Energy Security Expert, Center for the Study of Democracy, Sofia

Discussants:

Mikhail Krutikhin, Carnegie Moscow Center and Partner in RusEnergy, an independent consulting agency

Hans-Peter Hinrichsen, Head of Division 205 (Russia, Belarus, Moldova, CIS; EU), German Federal Foreign Office

Chair: Stefan Meister, Head of the Robert Bosch Center for Central and Eastern Europe, Russia, and Central Asia, DGAP

The event was organized by the Robert Bosch Center for Central and Eastern Europe, Russia, and Central Asia and was held in English. We would like to thank the German Federal Foreign Office for its support.
