Joining us is Sean Guillory of Sean's Russia Blog and Podcast, at seansrussiablog.org. He has a PhD in Russian History from UCLA.
Sean helps us dive into the nitty gritty about what's actually going on with Russia today. We ask: -Who's in charge? How does Russia's leadership work? -Why is United Russia so popular? -What's the economy really look like? -How corrupt is Russia? -How do Russians feel about the world? -What's the plan in Ukraine? How's it going? -What about the Syria intervention? -Did Russia manipulate US elections? -Why is Russia picking a fight with NATO? -What common narratives about Russia just don't make sense?
