ArtSmart Lecture Series: Oligarchs and The Kremlin: The Friends and Enemies of Vladimir Putin
Kravis Center for the Performing Arts
An exploration of fast-moving individuals, with deep pockets, who came to the aid of Boris Yeltsin in 1996 who was about to lose the presidential election to the Communist Gennady Zyuganov. In return, Yeltsin awarded these moneyed individuals with majority shares in Russia’s key industries: oil, gas, and minerals, for which they paid relatively very small amounts. Resigning the presidency on December 31, 1999, Boris Yeltsin appointed Vladimir Putin president pro-temp. Fearing Putin’s new control of Russia’s finances and industries, some oligarchs fled the country and kept their assets, while others remained, bringing back monies to Russia, paying their taxes and keeping out of the Kremlin’s business.
Doors open 30 minutes prior to program. Please allow time for parking. Program subject to change.
