The Jamestown Foundation cohosted an event with Hudson Institute on “Preparing for the Dissolution of the Russian Federation” on Tuesday, February 14.

While it is unknown when Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine will end, a Russian defeat would likely lead to the dissolution of the Russian Federation as it is known today. Because of the Kremlin’s decision to attack Ukraine, Moscow’s once extensive influence across Eurasia has dwindled, and the war has devastated Russia’s economy, military, and social stability. US and allied policymakers need to understand this possibility and prepare for the new Eurasian geopolitical reality that a fall of the Russian Federation might bring.

Hudson Institute and The Jamestown Foundation brought in several esteemed panelists to discuss Russian domestic social friction and what US and allied policymakers need to do now to prepare for the country’s possible collapse.
