Good evening, listeners! We have an excellent episode for you this week, as host Richard Aldous speaks with Lilia Shevtsova about her recent series of essays focused on how the West misjudged Russia.

Lilia Shevtsova, a member of The American Interest‘s editorial board and a nonresident scholar in the Foreign Policy Program at the Brookings Institution, discusses how pragmatists have repeatedly misread Russia. She looks back at the past two decades and describes how the Western world has time and again failed to accurately judge Moscow, from Medvedev to Ukraine.
