Join us for a meeting of the New York-Russia Public Policy Seminar, a forum co-hosted by the Harriman Institute and the New York University Jordan Center for the Advanced Study of Russia. The COVID-19 pandemic has swept across the world with alarming speed, but impact and reactions have varied tremendously across countries. Our panel, which includes two Moscow Times reporters who have been covering the pandemic, will assess the impact COVID-19 has had on Russian society, including vulnerable populations, as well as Russian politics.

This event is supported by a grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
