Perspectives on Russia from Now Into the Next Generation

Please join the Program on U.S.-Russia Relations at the Harriman Institute for a talk with Brigadier General Peter B. Zwack U.S. Army (Retired), a Global Fellow at the Kennan Institute for Advanced Russian Studies.

This event was live streamed on our Facebook page via Facebook Live.

From 2012 to 2014, BG(r) Zwack served as the United States Senior Defense Official and Attache to the Russian Federation. By interacting with Russians at multiple levels since 1989, including defense, security, academia, policy, veterans, and private citizens, BG Zwack developed a unique hands-on perspective on Russia and Eurasian security affairs during a turbulent period that included the recent strife in Crimea and Eastern Ukraine. Currently, he is a Global Fellow at the Kennan Institute for Advanced Russian Studies within the Wilson International Center for Scholars and continues his work and interests regarding Eurasia, especially focusing on Russia, Europe, and Northeast Asia.
