On October 1 and 2, the Estonian capital Tallinn will host the 5th Anti-War Conference organized by the Free Russia Forum, whose founders are well-known Russian oppositionists Garry Kasparov and Ivan Tyutrin.
The course of the war: how are the AFU advancing on the front and what is needed to bring Ukraine’s victory – and the collapse of Putin’s regime – closer? Deathonomics: how is the war affecting Russia’s economy and how is it affecting the global economy? What is the fate of frozen Russian assets abroad and is there a mechanism to transfer them to rebuild Ukraine? The Kremlin’s neo-Soviet mythology as fuel for war: how to “disconnect” the people from neo-Sovietism and “spiritual staples” imposed by Putin’s propaganda? Russian fault: is Russian culture responsible for the current bloody horror? European integration on the march: what important geopolitical processes and changes in the defense sphere the war has triggered in the West? These and other topical issues will be discussed during the conference discussions.
