The conference, which gathered over 130 people, has become a platform for an uncensored, constructive dialogue among those who are dissatisfied with the current political regime in Russia. In 2019 the conference was renamed as “Russia for Citizens”. Over 150 people joined together in Berlin.
The main concept of the conference is to develop a scenario, formats and ideas for the possible future of Russia not relying on the current government. At both conferences, panel discussions are held on the topics of economics, politics, media, human rights issues and Russia’s international presence.
