Neighbors from hell? Fyodor Lukyanov, editor-in-chief of Russia in Global Affairs

Just as the Canadians or the Chileans have long griped about the United States appropriating the words ‘America’ and ‘American’ for itself, so too have the Russians regarding the European Union calling itself and only itself Europe. As the EU (like the US) comes to reassess what it is and what it stands for, what does it mean for those sharing the continent with it? To discuss this, Oksana is joined by Fyodor Lukyanov, editor-in-chief of ‘Russia in Global Affairs’.
