The End of the Russian Idea with Andrei Kolesnikov

26. oktober 2023 kl. 17.00 - 18.30 CEST

On the 24th of February 2022, Russia invaded Ukraine, and a full-blown war began. To this day, there is no peace, and sadly, there is no prospect of peace.

More than a year later, the question remains: How much longer can Putin keep this going?

Putin has much to lose if the outcome of this war doesn’t turn out in his favor. However, as Andrei Kolesnikov writes in an article in Foreign Affairs titled “The End of the Russian Idea,” it may take more than just the outcome of the war for Putin’s hold over Russian society to break.

We have invited Andrei Kolesnikov from Carnegie to share his insights and knowledge about the current situation in Russia. Andrei Kolesnikov is a senior fellow at the Carnegie Russia Eurasia Center, with a particular research focus on ideological shifts inside Russian society. He joined Carnegie in 2015. Before that, Kolesnikov worked for several leading Russian publications, including Novaya Gazeta, Izvestia, and The New Times. Kolesnikov has also published several books, including books about Anatoli Chubais.

The opening remarks will be given by Ambassador Carsten Søndergaard.

Carsten Søndergaard served as ambassador to Russia from 2018 to 2022. He has previously been ambassador to Ireland, NATO, Germany, and Turkey. From 2001 to 2005, he was the head of the Northern Group in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which included foreign and security policy, as well as EU policy.

The event will be moderated by Charlotte Flindt Pedersen, Director of the Danish Foreign Policy Society.

For members arriving by car, we recommend parking at Q-Park Nørreport. Please note that, at the moment, Vendersgade is only accessible for bikes. Motor vehicles can access the parking facility via Gothersgade.

This event is fully booked. Sign up to the waitlist by sending an email to containing your full name and contact information.
