April has been an especially busy month for Associate Dean Nina Khrushcheva in the media.
In Quartz, she wrote an article about Vladimir Putin’s governing style. “Just a few years into his presidency,” writes Nina, “[Putin] chose not the road that Khrushchev and Gorbachev had contemplated—of political cooperation, economic prosperity and military cutbacks—but the mindset of most Russian leaders: animosity, militancy and isolation. And this is where our friend Vladimir should tread lightly. There is a precedent for the fantastic failure of overconfident Russian leaders he would be wise to learn from.”
Finally, Nina was interviewed on Al Jazeera America to answer the question: Does Vladimir Putin have a grand strategy to split up alliances and complicate matters within the European Union?
