Russia and Ukraine on the brink of war.

Listen to tomorrow’s podcast when Professor Andrei Pavlovich Tsygankov, Professor of international relations, Russian and  International Politics at San Francisco State University will share his analysis .

Russia recognized two breakaway regions of Ukraine and sent in its’ troops as peacekeepers. These easternmost regions have many Russian speakers, like other former Soviet Allies from the Baltics to Central Asia. 

So as the West imposed sweeping economic and banking sanctions on Russia, will Putin take this moment to reflect and pullback or will Russian armored divisions roll across the Ukrainian steppes ?

Tune in to Thursday’s podcast for an insightful conversation with Professor Tsygankov.
