Podcast: The Ghosts Of Crackdowns Past
This week, many in Russia and much of the former Soviet Union marked the Day of Remembrance of Victims of Political Repression.
Do past periods of repression in Russia teach us anything about the Kremlin's current crackdown on dissent?
In the latest edition of "The Power Vertical Podcast," I discuss this issue with two guests: historian Sean Guillory, a fellow at the University of Pittsburgh's Center for Russian and Eastern European Studies and author of Sean's Russia Blog
; and New York University professor Mark Galeotti, an expert on Russia's security services and author of the blog In Moscow's Shadows.
