31st August, 2018
From the annexation of Crimea to the intervention in Syria, accusations of election-rigging and the poisoning of defectors, what are the motivations behind Russia’s growing hostility towards its global neighbours? Foreign policy and energy security expert Nazrin Mehdiyeva (Beyond Blood Oil), journalist and former PR adviser to the Kremlin Angus Roxburgh (Moscow Calling) and media and communications expert Martin Moore (Democracy Hacked) examine the power and politics of an increasingly bold Russia and consider Putin’s long-term strategy when it comes to international relations, with The Sunday Times Foreign Editor Peter Conradi (Who Lost Russia?).
