How should we handle Russia? In recent years, an increasingly bullish approach by Moscow towards its global neighbours has led to soaring tensions with the West. Is the key to deciphering Russia’s motivations a deeper understanding of Vladimir Putin himself? Mark Galeotti (We Need to Talk About Putin), Peter Pomeranstev (This Is Not Propaganda), Andrew Monaghan (Dealing with the Russians) and BBC Newsnight International Editor Gabriel Gatehouse consider whether by understanding Putin the man, we can unravel his tactics and long-term strategy for Russia’s place in the world. Chaired by Oliver Balch.
