    YCAPS is happy to invite Mr. Konstantin von Eggert, MBE, for our latest Indo-Pacific Policy Dialogue to speak about the implications of Russian foreign and domestic policy on the wider Indo-Pacific region. This pertains particularly to the recent deepening of Russian ties with North Korea, its strengthening friendship with China and its overall attempts to destabilize the international order based on the rule of law, including but not limited to its military aggression in Eastern Europe. This session provides policymakers, scholars, and enthusiasts with a valuable opportunity to gain deep insights into the intricate dynamics of Russian domestic and foreign politics and its specific impact on the Indo-Pacific region.
