The sudden fall of the Berlin Wall continues to be one of the most unexpected and impactful events of our time leading to a transformation of world politics in the late 1980s and early 1990’s. Now, 30 years later DOC welcomes Andrey Grachev, Mikhail Gorbachev’s former spokesman and adviser to our Meet in Mitte event series in the heart of Berlin.
Andrey Grachev, privileged observer of this period of history, journalist, political scientist and renowned specialist in the history of East-West relations, will speak about the aspirations of Russian society during Perestroika and give his analyses about what went wrong between Russia and the West at the end of the Cold war and which lessons we can learn from this today.
After the talk there will be time for audience Q&A, followed by networking. Light refreshments will be served.
The event took place on Wednesday 30th of October from 6pm.
