Policy Paper Maria Domanska 26. January 2023
The war in Ukraine is putting the future of Russia more and more in our hands. A decisive victory of Ukraine makes an end to the Putin regime more likely. The West needs to prepare for this moment because it may offer a short opportunity to encourage the country to embark on a more democratic and law-abinding path, writes Maria Domanska.

Russia’s war against Ukraine has upended not just relations with the West but is testing the international system as a whole. The urgent need for new thinking has prompted the Center of Liberal Modernity to set up its Expert Network Russia, which met in Vilnius under the headline “Rethinking Russia” for the first time on 31 October.

Comment Ralf Fücks 19. October 2022
It is time to think about a Russia after Putin. If defeated in Ukraine, conditions in the country will also change. Whether for the better or the worse is an open question. Without a departure from the imperial delusion, Russia will remain in the eternal vicious circle of war politics and authoritarian rule.
