In this episode of The Internationalist, host Julio Bruno sits down with Charles Crawford, the former British Ambassador to Poland, Serbia and Montenegro, and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Julio and Charles discuss the political framework of Central and Eastern Europe after the Soviet collapse, and how that atmosphere has gradually led up to the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine. Charles outlines his own observations as a British ambassador in post-Soviet countries, including the attitudes of their people about ongoing Russian influence. They analyze President Vladimir Putin’s patterns of hostility in the region and his imperialist motivations—as well as what it will take to stop him.
