What's next for Russia?

Russia expert, John Lough, joins us to discuss the current crisis, Germany’s failings in the years preceding the war and the outlook for Russia and Ukraine going forward.

He spent six years with NATO’s Office of Information & Press (1995-2001), including a posting to Moscow where he set up NATO’s Information Office. He later managed NATO’s information programmes aimed at Central & Eastern Europe.

'With admirable clarity, fairness and insight, Lough lays bare the roots and results of Germany's failure to think strategically about Russia, and the price that everyone else pays as a result.'
