The fourth installment in the 2019 Summer Teleconference Series on territorial disputes, featuring Crimea.
In 2014, Russia essentially annexed the Crimean peninsula away from Ukraine, reigniting a feud between Russia and the West.
How have Putin’s popularity and policies in Russia been affected by the annexation of Crimea? How will Ukraine’s new President Volodymyr Zelensky navigate Russia’s continued control of the region? What is the state of human rights in the region, particularly for Crimean Tatars, who have been subject to ongoing persecution and discrimination?
