Russian ambassador to the United Nations at BYU March 16

His Excellency Vitaly Churkin, Russian ambassador to the United Nations, will present a briefing on "Russian Foreign Policy" on Monday, March 16, at noon in 238 Herald R. Clark Building at Brigham Young University.

His visit will help prepare BYU students who will be participating in the National Model United Nations in New York City in April. The lecture is also open to the community.

Churkin was appointed the permanent representative of the Russian Federation to the United Nations in 2006 following a long career in the Foreign Service that began in 1974.

His previous appointments include postings with the UN Security Council; the Barents/Euro-Arctic Council; and as ambassador to Canada, Belgium, NATO, and WEU. He also served as deputy foreign minister of the Russian Federation, director of the Information Department and spokesman of the USSR Foreign Ministry, as a special adviser to the USSR Minister of Foreign Affairs, and positions at the Russian Embassy in Washington, D.C.

Churkin graduated from the Moscow Institute for Foreign Affairs (1974) and received a doctorate in history from the USSR Diplomatic Academy (1981).

This lecture will be archived online. For more information on events sponsored by the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies, see the calendar online at kennedy.byu.edu.
