Presidential elections in Russia: what is at stake for Europe?


Vladimir Putin's challenge is not so much winning the election but getting enough people to vote to make this election look even vaguely credible. The results of the Russian presidential election will be discussed three days after Russians go to the ballots within the broader framework of the geopolitical strategies of the Kremlin, including its influence on the rising European far right as well as Ukraine and Central-Eastern Europe. The public conference will provide an opportunity for experts in various disciplines from Hungary and Austria to have a broader discussion on the topic.
