On June 6, at 3:00 pm, the Valdai Discussion Club held its fifth annual session within the framework of SPIEF-2019, titled “A New Europe: What Is Russia to Expect?” The European Union has entered a period of fundamental change; the very model of European integration is changing. The established rules governing the relationship between the Europe and the USA are fading away. Recently, European Parliament elections were held, which also marked the beginning of a new era. The key question is: how significant are the changes? Are they fundamental in nature or are they merely a combination of 'cosmetic elements'? What will the European Union be? What is the future of Euro-bureaucracy? Entrance to the event is open to SPIEF participants and journalists accredited by the Forum.
