How will the election of Donald Trump change the geopolitical equation in the post-Soviet space?

It's a question that is on a lot of people's minds from Tallinn to Kyiv to Tbilisi. And it's a question we explore on this week's Power Vertical Podcast.

Joining me is co-host Mark Galeotti, a senior research fellow at the Institute of International Relations in Prague, a visiting fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations, and author of the blog In Moscow's Shadows; and Natalia Churikova, managing editor of RFE/RL's Ukrainian Service and host of the program European Connect.
