Podcast: The Eastern Front

Boots on the ground.

The Baltic states and Poland are finally getting what they have long wanted: NATO boots on the ground to deter a revanchist Russia.

In the wake of the Atlantic alliance's landmark summit in Warsaw, The Power Vertical Podcast traveled to Tartu, Estonia to take the temperature and explore the view from the Baltics.

Joining me are three professors from the University of Tartu: Vello Pettai, a professor of comparative politics at the Johan Skytte Institute of Political Studies and co-author of the book Transitional and Retrospective Justice in the Baltic States: Piret Ehin, director of the Center for EU-Russia Studies; and Vyacheslav Morozov, an expert on Russian foreign policy and author of the book Russia's Postcolonial Identity.
