Russian Political War with the West: goals and tools, lecture by Dr. Mark Galeotti
Moscow is again being presented as some kind of existential challenge for the West, manipulating an election here, invading a country there. Yet how can a nation with a GDP smaller than that of Texas, a declining population, and a shrinking defense budget, pose such a problem? And more to the point, why? Dr Mark Galeotti, author of the new book Russia's Political War, explores Moscow's real goals, the real threat, and how the West keeps getting Putin wrong.
