Few are likely to oppose Vladimir Putin in the 2018 Russian presidential elections. Yet potential challenger Alexei Navalny, who is a central figure in the opposition group the pro-democracy movement, is gaining momentum. How will the pro-democracy movement obtain political victory and what shifts might occur to overturn a legacy of corruption in Russia? What feasible changes can the opposition implement to serve all Russians?

Vladimir Ashurkov, Executive Director of the Anti-Corruption Foundation and close colleague of Alexei Navalny, will provide insight into the pro-democracy campaign, recent protests in Moscow and the many challenges facing the opposition movement.
