Event Description

This New Direction report outlines the main aspects of Russia's approach towards EU Member States. President Putin has been challenging solidarity among EU countries by exploiting vulnerabilities and undermining sovereignty of his near neighbours. 

Through the Bulgarian case, Dr Dimitar Bechev investigates Russian interference within EU Member States by exploring gas issues, political parties support, the financial sector and real estate market. The methodology proposed by the author constitutes a helpful tool which could be easily transposed to other case studies.

Wine, cava and fingerfoods will be provided.
