CrossTalk: Russia & the Global South

The West’s sanctions against Russia are distorting and damaging the global economy. Consumers all over the world are experiencing higher prices and shortages.

CrossTalk on Ukraine, HOME EDITION: End game?

CrossTalk: An absence of trust

Any meaningful relationship is based on the following: trust. This is what's absent in Russia’s relationship with the West. Essentially, Moscow does not deem Western leaders to be good-faith actors. This is the lesson learned since the end of the Cold War. As we all know, regaining trust is very difficult, if not impossible.

CrossTalking, with Garland Nixon, Daniel Lazare, and Bruce S. Marks.

An irreversible split. That is probably the most accurate way to describe Russia’s relationship with the West today. But it didn’t have to be that way. Attempts to cripple the Russian economy have failed, and efforts to isolate Russia have left the West isolated itself.

CrossTalking with Michael Maloof, Michael Flanagan, and Maxim Suchkov.
