SSEESing the Russia report
27 July 2020, 6:00 pm–7:30 pm
This event is free.
The UK Parliament’s Intelligence and Security Committee’s report on Russia was released on Tuesday 21 July 2020.
Its release adds to a string of other high-profile Russia stories in recent UK news, including allegations from UK, US, and Canadian security services that Russian state-backed hackers have been targeting organisations trying to develop a vaccine for coronavirus, as well as a claim by Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab that Russian actors sought to interfere in the 2019 general election in the UK.
What – if anything – have we learned from the ISC report? Has the threat to UK national interests from the Russian state been underplayed – or under-investigated? Or might Russian state actors’ capacity and willingness to interfere in UK affairs be exaggerated?
Join us on Monday 27 July at 18:00 (London time) for a SSEESing NOW panel discussion of these and other questions.
