After the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the completion of the transitional process known as "Perestroika" whose objective was the opening of the country, Russia began its journey towards democracy and the free market. The massive privatisations, high levels of inflation and the confrontation between the executive and legislative were some of the difficulties encountered in the nineties. In recent years, deindustrialization, together with high levels of unemployment, the economic dependency on petrol and gas, insecurity and the increasing interventionism in foreign politics (Georgia, Ukraine and Syria) have emerged as some of the new challenges of the Russian drift.

To debate the future of Russia in this new session of The Burning Issue, we will be accompanied by Mira Milosevich, Lecturer in International Relations at the Instituto de Empresa (IE University) and associate senior researcher at the Real Instituto Elcano and Nicolás de Pedro, principal researcher at the Barcelona Centre for International Affairs (CIDOB), where he is responsible for the post-Soviet space (Russia, Ukraine, Central Asia) and India.

A debate format in which, once a month, on a Monday at 7:30 pm, leading experts analyse important issues that make up today’s social reality with the journalists Antonio San José and Íñigo Alfonso.

Coalition governments, new approaches to university education, the future of the press in Spain, the future of the Autonomous Regions in Spain, electoral reform, robots and industry, climate change, political leadership during the Spanish democracy, pharmaceutical industry and health, the Arab world, the solutions to the crisis, independence movements, globalisation, the future of Europe, anti-system movements, aging, virus of the new Millennium and the future of the monarchies in the world have been several of the issues involved.

The presenters put some of the audience’s questions to the guests. Please send your suggestions to:
