A revolution, an annexation, a war, and a looming financial crisis.

From the Euromiadan to the seizure of Crimea to the conflict in the Donbas, 2014 has been a momentous -- and highly consequential -- year.

And with the conflict in eastern Ukraine unresolved, Russia headed for a recession, and the air thick with political uncertainty, 2015 promises to be just as eventful.

In the last Power Vertical Podcast of 2014, we look back at the year that was -- and ahead to the one approaching.

Joining me are co-hosts Mark Galeotti, a professor at New York University, an expert on Russia's security services, and author of the blog "In Moscow's Shadows"and Kirill Kobrin, editor of the Moscow-based history and sociology magazine "Neprikosnovenny zapas."
