Make America -gate again? Dmitry Suslov, deputy director at the Center for Comprehensive European and Intl. Studies at HSE
According to Karl Marx, history repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce, but in the case of American politics, it’s fast turning into a sitcom in which the characters and even the situations remain invariably fixed. With yet another -gate (now Ukraine-gate) taking over Washington, is there any hope for moving ahead with any of the world’s pressing problems? To discuss this, Oksana is joined by Dmitry Suslov, deputy director at the Center for Comprehensive European and International Studies at the Higher School of Economics. He took part as an expert in the 16th annual meeting of the Valdai Discussion Club this year.
