How do Russia’s other neighbors view the conflict in Ukraine? Can a close look at these nation’s histories and domestic politics help us forecast their future behavior toward Putin and Moscow? Hannes Meissner, Managing Partner of L&M Political Risk and Strategic Advisory, and Dee Smith, CEO of Strategic Insights Group, scrutinize Germany, factionalized but also critical because of its close energy ties to Russia. And Meissner offers a stark warning about the growing power of European far-right political groups. This is an epic journey through the history, the people, and the ideas central to Europe’s perspective on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Recorded on May 9, 2022.
