FLASH CALL - Top Russia Insider to Discuss Developments Inside Putin’s Russia (on 11/6 @ 1pm EST)

FLASH CALL - Top Russia Insider to Discuss Developments Inside Putin’s Russia (on 11/6 @ 1pm EST) - HE M putin

 

In light of the continuing crash of its currency and stock market, we are receiving considerable customer interest on the question: “What’s going on with Russia?”

 

As a result, Hedgeye’s Macro Team is hosting a special “Behind the Curtain” conference call this Thursday, November 6th at 1:00pm EST with Michael McFaul, one of the world’s foremost experts on Russia and Vladimir Putin. Until earlier this year, McFaul was the U.S. Ambassador to Russia and held closed-door meetings with Putin and his top lieutenants before finally stepping down out of concern for his family and his own safety.

 

Mr. McFaul has been called, “the leading scholar of his generation, maybe THE leading scholar, on post-Communist Russia.” He was President Obama’s chief advisor on Russia through his first term and was a main policy architect of “Reset” in U.S. - Russian relations.

 

A high-profile figure during his time in Moscow, McFaul was harassed and accused of orchestrating a coup. Perhaps in light of his considerable work and reputation as an expert on anti-dictator movements and revolutions, Putin reportedly stared at McFaul across a meeting table and remarked, “We know that your Embassy is working with the opposition to undermine me.” 

 

*The New York Times recently ran an intriguing article, “Former U.S. Envoy to Moscow Says Russians Are Still Spying on Himon McFaul detailing how Russia is still spying on him.

 

McFaul will provide 30 minutes of prepared remarks, followed by open Q&A moderated by Hedgeye’s analyst Matt Hedrick.

 

 

KEY TOPICS ON THE CALL WILL INCLUDE 

  • What are the roots of ‘Putinism’ and where is the country economically heading?
  • How do weaker energy prices influence the Kremlin’s strategy (economic, political, and social)?
  • How is the East-West battle over Ukraine resolved?
  • What are the impacts of sanctions on Russia and the West and how might they evolve?
  • Can Russia successfully pivot to the East?
