This is part 1 of our conversation with Stanislav Byshok.
The Barricade brings you a reasonable, balanced, and critical voice from Russia; the hosts of “On the Barricades” invited Stanislav Byshok, a Russian political scientist and a frequent commentator on some Russian media outlets, as well as an expert in international relations of the NGO “Public Diplomacy” and author of numerous books, reports, and articles on the situation in Ukraine.
What caused this to happen? What was the Russian people’s initial reaction? Was this solely Putin’s decision, and is the state’s vast bureaucracy on his side? How has Russian public opinion changed in the last 20 days? What are Putin’s approval ratings? Is there any representation of antiwar voices in Russian politics? How are the Russians reacting to the wave of hatred that is sweeping the West
This and much more will be available on the upcoming three recordings with Stanislav Byshok. We’re releasing the first installment today (March 13), and the next two will be published the following Monday (March 14) and Tuesday (March 15).
