A cease-fire in Ukraine was followed by an intervention in Syria. And now, a cease-fire in Syria is followed by a fresh escalation in Ukraine.
Russia's bait-and-switch tactics suggest the Kremlin is fighting one war with the West -- albeit on two fronts.
And on this week's Power Vertical Podcast, we take a close look at both Russian fronts.
Joining me are Michael Weiss, senior editor at the Daily Beast and co-author of bestselling book ISIS: Inside The Army Of Terror; Kadri Liik, a senior fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations; and Andreas Umland, a senior research fellow at the Institute for Euro-Atlantic Cooperation in Kyiv.
The Power Vertical is a blog written especially for Russia wonks and obsessive Kremlin watchers by Brian Whitmore. It offers Brian's personal take on emerging and developing trends in Russian politics, shining a spotlight on the high-stakes power struggles, machinations, and clashing interests that shape Kremlin policy today.
