Richard Sakwa: Every Valdai Forum Is Different

Every Valdai forum is different. This is the most different of all. This is the third time Vladimir Putin made his keynote speech. Two years ago it was about conservatism and values, last year it was about global order and disorder. This time Putin was more technical in line with the conference debates on how to overcome the global disorder and global conflicts. The discussions showed that 25 years after the end of the Cold war there is no stable order.
