Weaponizing Kleptocracy: Putin’s Hybrid Warfare


Soon after Russia’s annexation of Crimea in 2014, experts began using the term “hybrid warfare” to describe the threat posed by the Kremlin to neighboring countries. In Weaponizing Kleptocracy: Putin’s Hybrid Warfare, Marius Laurinavičius explores the roots of Russia’s hybrid warfare, how kleptocracy fits into Putin’s global strategy, and the ways in which it increases the risk of a conventional war between Russia and the West. On Wednesday morning, Charles Davidson, Jeffrey Gedmin, Hannah Thoburn [a Penn Kemble fellow at the National Endowment for Democacy] and Michael Weiss will join Laurinavičius to discuss these issues and more.
