The Falls Church City Republican Committee is featuring a presentation on Russian President Vladimir Putin next Thursday, March 19, at 7:30 a.m. at the American Legion Post 130 at 400 North Oak Street. Ekaterina Egorova, Ph.D, the political adviser to former Russian President Boris Yeltsin, will give a presentation featuring research she’s done offering an explanation for Putin’s recent actions in Eastern Europe.
Egorova has published several books, including One Cannot be Born a Politician: How to become an Effective Political Leader, published in 1993; Games with Toy Soldiers: The Political Psychology of Presidents and In the Fog of War: Offensive Military Communicative Technologies (2010).
According to a press release from the Falls Church City Republican Committee about the event, a year ago at Washington’s National Press Club, Professor Egorova said that President Obama may have made a mistake in not accepting Putin’s invitation to attend the Sochi Olympics and predicted that Crimea or Moldova might be targeted for military action. Next Thursday’s presentation, which is free and open to the public, will be followed by a Falls Church GOP meeting at 8:15 p.m.
