MGIMO Houses Conference on 20th Anniversary of Dayton Deal

April 7th, MGIMO played venue to a major international conference commemorating the Dayton Agreement signed 20 years ago. The gathering was attended by diplomats and academics from Russia and the Balkan states.

A. Torkunov noted that Dayton could serve as a model to settle the current situation in Ukraine.
