In 2016, a rival foreign power, Vladimir Putin’s Russia, launched an attack on the United States of America. What we now know is that American intelligence agencies have concluded that Russia planned and executed a campaign to undermine our democracy and to affect our Presidential election.

For President Trump, Russia is a complicated subject. But this podcast isn't about Donald Trump's complications with Russia, nor is it about Republicans and Democrats. One of the dangers in the hyper partisan American debate over Russia’s role in the 2016 presidential election is that it is blurring the larger picture. This three part podcast mini-series is about the larger picture. Episode one will look at why Russia meddled in our election; episode two will examine case studies of past Russian behavior; and episode three will discuss what the US can do to counter Russia's actions.

Great podcast

Straight forward and non partisan. Looking forward to more episodes.

Big picture view

Great, a-political analysis of Russia. Their motivations, methods and means as well as ways to counter. If you think this is “fake news” or more maiming about who won/lost the 2016 election you’re missing the point. The original study focused on European countries and Russia’s main goal to break apart liberal (not left leaning but free) democracies and alliances. This is bigger than American politics.

How about this comment section...

Listen to the podcast, share it with all your friends, then look at the garbage in the comment section. The trolls are out in force for this one. That means it must be right in the money. Thanks for proving the folks at CSIS right :)
