Professor Mark Galeotti (Online Event)
A Short History of Russia

Tuesday, May 25, 2021 19:30 - 20:30

A Short History of Russia (the country that keeps re-inventing itself)

Every country rewrites its history, every nation picks its past, but few countries and nations as assiduously as Russia. Why has there been such a need for the constant re-invention of Russia's thousand-year history, and what are the continuities between medieval Muscovy, the Tsars' Russia, the Soviet Union and today's nation? And how is Vladimir Putin trying to redefine the past to control the future?
