Dr. Marina Oborotova, President of the Albuquerque International Association, gives this lecture.


She will give a special talk about the situation in Russia and Ukraine right after her return from Russia. She will provide the freshest news and an "insider" analysis about a crisis that is certain to continue for a long time. 

Although it seems that the situation in Ukraine has stabilized a bit after the presidential election, the crises in and around that country are far from over.  In addition to the turbulence in its eastern regions, Ukraine faces serious energy supply difficulties and must also undertake profound and painful economic and political reforms.  In Russia, too, there have been substantial political changes. The government has increased its control over the media and has taken steps to limit freedom of expression.  President Putin's popularity, anti-Americanism and anti-Europeanism have all reached unprecedented heights. US-Russian relations are experiencing their worst crisis since the end of the Cold War, with both sides destroying channels of communication and collaborative practices created after the collapse of the Soviet Union.
