In the previous segment, Boyan Stanislavski, the host of “On the Barricades,” and his guest Pat Byrne, a political analyst, socialist activist, and historian of the European left, discussed the goals that Putin may be pursuing by ordering the invasion of Ukraine. In this segment, Boyan and Pat discuss Russia’s internal political process and the role that the current war may play in this regard. Will Russia see a massive anti-war movement?
