For weeks, hundreds of thousands of Georgians have peacefully demonstrated across the country against the “Russian Law,” a bill designed by the Georgian Dream party to stifle and restrict civil society and political opposition. Georgia’s Western friends have warned that the law is not compatible with Euro-Atlantic integration. But the Kremlin has supported Georgian Dream’s measures. In addition to the harm the law will do to Georgia’s democracy and Euro-Atlantic path, there are serious implications for the Black Sea region if Tbilisi fully falls under the influence of Moscow.

Join Hudson for an expert panel on the regional implications of this crisis.
