Ten years on after the fall of the Soviet Union, the Russian Federation faces challenges that its people did not anticipate -- a country desperately impoverished, rife with corruption and facing increased restrictions on civil liberties. David Satter, who covered Russia for The Wall Street Journal and the New York Times, will review the staggering nature of the changes that have swept Russian life, society, and ways of thinking.

David Satter is the author of "Darkness at Dawn: The Rise of the Russian Criminal State" (May 2003, Yale University Press). The former Moscow correspondent of the Financial Times of London and special correspondent on Soviet affairs for The Wall Street Journal, he is a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute, a research fellow at the Hoover Institution, and a visiting scholar at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies. He is also the author of "Age of Delirium: The Decline and Fall of the Soviet Union" (2001, Yale University Press), which will be published in Russian in September.

Please RSVP by Monday, May 12 by email to <dc-response@rferl.org>, by telephone to Melody Jones at (202) 457-6949, or by fax to (202) 457-6992.
