Russia has launched a hybrid war on the West that has caused serious damage to U.S. domestic politics and international relations between the U.S. and Europe. Why did this happen? To what extent was Russian President Vladimir Putin to blame? Or were deeper influences at play in Russia’s history and relations with the West? Or was the West itself to blame by expanding NATO and pushing Russia into a corner? Why have Russia’s relations with the West become so sour, again? Explore the nature of the political regime in the Kremlin and various theories about its troubled relations with the West today, including the U.S. and European countries.
