About the Show
Be it the annexation of Crimea, military action in Syria or meddling in foreign elections, Russia is increasingly emboldened on the world stage despite harsh sanctions and international censure. But what lies ahead for the nation and its economy and citizens after some two decades of Vladimir Putin’s ironclad rule?
Award–winning Putin biographer and The Future is Historyauthor Masha Gessen joins Moscow-based correspondent for The Telegraph, Alec Luhn, and former Russia correspondent, Monica Attard, to examine the future of Russia. Masha Gessen is supported by Rowena Danziger AM and Ken Coles AM.
