Journalists Peter Conradi and Angus Roxburgh discuss the new Russia and its place in the world with the benefit of their years of first-hand experience of living in and reporting on the country. They will also reflect on the outcome of the Russian presidential election on March 18.

Conradi is Sunday Times foreign editor and witnessed, as a foreign correspondent, the collapse of the Soviet Union. In an updated version of his Who Lost Russia? How the World Entered a New Cold War, he looks at how a new Russia has emerged with an upgraded arsenal of weapons and a determination to assert its interests in places such as Chechnya, Georgia and Ukraine. And he reflects on the impact of the Trump presidency.

Roxburgh was Sunday Times Moscow correspondent 1987-89, BBC Moscow correspondent 1991-97 and Putin’s media consultant at the Kremlin 2006-2009. In Moscow Calling: Memoirs of a Foreign Correspondent, he looks at the human events behind the big political stories of the last 40 years and at his frustrating work inside the Kremlin.
