Countering Putin’s Russia: A conversation with Rep. Adam Smith (D-WA)

  • American Enterprise Institute 1789 Massachusetts Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20036 United States (map)

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in 2014 revealed that Vladimir Putin intends to revise the post–Cold War order in Europe. But his subsequent intervention into Syria and meddling in politics on both sides of the Atlantic demonstrate that Putin’s strategy reaches beyond recovering geopolitical assets lost in the Soviet Union’s collapse, and includes a broad, methodical push to erode unity in the West.

The American Enterprise Institute is hosting Leon Aron and Rep. Adam Smith (D-WA), ranking member on the House Armed Services Committee to discuss how Washington should thwart the Putin regime’s support of euroskeptic populists, global cyberattacks, interventions in elections, and constant threat of military intervention and how US partners can safeguard themselves against Russian threats of intervention and destabilization.
