Michael McFaul is a seasoned Diplomat who was Ambassador to Russia under President Obama. This is a man who has been in the room for negotiations with Putin and he has a lot to say about the current situation in Ukraine.
Black Diplomats host Terrell Starr has been following McFaul’s career and reading his work for years. As the conversation develops it becomes clear that the respect and admiration goes both ways. McFaul opens the conversation about Russian-style colonialism and how that mindset overlaps with Western imperialism by referencing Starr’s frequent comments on the subject.
As the situation in Ukraine continues to grow there is a sense that these two really understand the stakes.
