Fortress Russia: Conspiracy Theories in Post-Soviet Russia

The King's Russia Institute and the War Studies Russian and Eurasian Security Research Group are pleased to invite you to a discussion of:

Fortress Russia: Conspiracy Theories in Post-Soviet Russia

Ilya Yablokov Fellow in Russian Studies, University of Leeds

As the West is consumed by conspiracy theories about Russia, Ilya Yablokov's new book, Fortress Russia, is the first-ever study of Russian conspiracy theories in the post-Soviet period. It explores how the West is portrayed in these conspiracy theories and how this image is used to create public support for the Kremlin. Yablokov examines why these conspiracy theories emerged and gained currency in Russia, and what role intellectuals have played in this process. His book shows how, in the new millennium, the image of the 'dangerous, conspiring West' provides national unity and has helped legitimize Russia's rapid turn to authoritarianism.
