The two topics occupying the majority of the press about Russia are the upcoming Duma elections and the Yukos/Khodorkovsky affair. That these issues are intertwined is clear; just how much so or exactly what the repercussions may or may not be related to these elections may not be.


Join USRCCNE and experts on the political and business climate of Russia as we review the backdrop to these elections, including the parties and campaign finance, and then discuss both the intended and the likely effects of recent events.
