Stephen Cohen on Russia

I have mixed feelings about Fareed Zakaria’s GPS (Sundays, CNN), but he does come up with interesting guests. New to me is Stephen Cohen, professor of Russian studies and history at NYU, and a frequent guest of Charlie Rose (whom I don’t get around to watching, I guess). Cohen was one of Zakaria’s guests yesterday, and his views on Russian external politics were clear and convincing. Of course, you might want to read that as “confirming my own prejudices”, but see if he doesn’t make just as much sense to you.

CNN offers the interview in two parts: one and two. If they get around to posting a transcript, I’ll extract some of it here, but the video is worth your time regardless.

The subjects include Georgia and the tiff over US anti-missileinstallations on Russia’s border. Go watch.
