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. 


Due to the summer holidays, our staff will be limited between 1 and 15 August. Premium and Standard job ads will still be published, but their social media promotion will be postponed to 16 August, as well as the publication of all Basic job ads.
