ACTIVE MEASURES – will Putin “elect” in Europe?

Foreign policy, Security and Defence
Date: Wednesday, 10 April 2019 18:00 - 21:00

Venue: European Parliament, Altiero Spinelli (ASP) building, room 3E2

18:00 - 21:00 (arrive for check-in between 17:15 and 17:45)

Defending Democracy is delighted to invite you to a special edition of its monthly Democracy Drinks: the avant-premiere of the European release of the documentary movie 'Active Measures'.

Active Measures chronicles the most successful espionage operation in Russian history: the American presidential election of 2016. The film exposes a 30-year history of covert political warfare devised by Vladimir Putin to disrupt, and ultimately control, world events. The filmmakers follow a trail of money, real estate, mob connections, and on the record confessions to expose an insidious plot that leads directly back to The White House. With democracy hanging in the balance worldwide, Active Measures is essential viewing.

Director Jack Bryan: “I hope that audiences learn the unfortunate lesson that we learned making it: that democracies are fragile. They don’t stick around long if they aren’t fought for and democracy, worldwide and in America, is on the decline. It is our duty and our salvation as citizens to fight this slide into nationalism and kleptocracy for ourselves and future generations. If we do not stand up now, democracy itself could easily become a thing of the past.”
