ICYMI: Russia and Ukraine — where did it all go so wrong?
- Feb 8, 2022 4:26 pm GMT
“An all-out invasion of Ukraine would be a huge risk for Russia. It would have an unpredictable outcome, it would commit Russia to a land war in Europe for many years and I don’t see why the Kremlin would want to take that risk or indeed what it would get out of it.”
Listen again to Simon Pirani, British energy researcher, historian and Ukraine-Russia-CIS regional expert, offering some reassuring insights into the fraught situation in eastern Ukraine. Simon delved into recent political history between the two countries and what motivated the build-up of Russian troops along their common border.
The episode is essential listening for anyone trying to understand how the crisis might pan out. Check it out on the Energy Flux podcast page (and please excuse the technical glitches — the Callin app servers seem to be having a bad day).
