GUEST: Keir Giles – Analyst, author and Eurasian security expert… You may not be interested in Russia. But Russia is interested in you. Writes Kier Giles in his book: Russia’s War on Everybody. Russia’s full-scale attack on Ukraine in 2022 is a challenge to the West also, and has prompted a range of responses, but also hesitancy, anxiety, and caution. From the expansion of NATO to military investment planning, supply of equipment and training of Ukraine troops, the Western alliance, as well as many other countries, are in this war, whether they fully acknowledge and embrace it, or not. But Russia has been waging a clandestine war against the West for decades. Hostile acts abroad, from poisoning dissidents to shooting down airliners, interfering in elections, spying, hacking, and murdering, have long been part and parcel of Kremlin foreign policy. But what is it all for? Why does Russia consistently behave like this? And what does it achieve? ———- SPEAKER: Keir Giles has spent his career watching, studying, and explaining Russia. Keir’s work has appeared in a wide range of academic and military publications across Europe and in North America, and he is a regular contributor and commentator on Russian affairs for international print and broadcast media. He is a Senior Consulting Fellow at the UK’s Royal Institute of International Affairs (Chatham House), and also works with the Conflict Studies Research Centre (CSRC), a group of deep subject matter experts on Eurasian security formerly attached to the British Ministry of Defence. He is a regular contributor to research projects on Russian security issues in the U.S., UK, and Europe. ———- BOOKS: Russia’s War on Everybody: And What it Means for You (2022) Moscow Rules: What Drives Russia to Confront the West (2019) The Turning Point for Russian Foreign Policy (2017) The State of the NATO-Russia Reset (2011) Potential Challenges to Public Order and Social Stability in the Russian Federation (2011) #keirgiles #ukraine #ukrainewar #russia #zelensky #putin #propaganda #war #disinformation #hybridwarfare #foreignpolicy #communism #sovietunion #postsoviet
