Fyodor Lukyanov – about the future of the South Caucasus
On Friday, March 26, the Gorchakov Fund hosted online  lecture “The South Caucasus after the World Order” by Editor-in-chief of Russia in Global Affairs, Chairman of the Presidium of the Council on Foreign and Defense Policy, Director for Scientific Research of the Foundation for Development and Support of the Valdai International Discussion Club, member of the Gorchakov Club Fyodor Lukyanov.

The lecture had been organized with the support of the Primakov Georgian-Russian Public Center in partnership with educational platform “EF – Education for Freedom”.

Fyodor Lukyanov analyzed the time of the breakup of the Soviet Union and influence of that factor onto distribution of power on the international arena. According to the expert, the post-Soviet space today, including countries of the South Caucasus, is going through a new period, which can be called a test of strength.

“During this new era, the South Caucasus as any other regional conglomerates of the world should feel and position itself differently. A new stage in development of that territory is beginning. Today, countries, which emerged as a result of the breakup of the USSR, including Russia, should pass an exam for a high school diploma and prove, above all, to the themselves that they are competent”, believes Fyodor Lukyanov.

A recording of the event is available on the YouTube channel of the Gorchakov Fund.
