The Threat From Russia: Can Putin Be Stopped?

by Bill Hayes

Intelligence Squared is a forum for debates, talks, and discussions around the world. One recent discussion is The Threat From Russia: Can Putin Be Stopped? The panelists included Anne Applebaum, a Pulitzer Prize-winning historian; Mikhail Khodorkovsky, a Russian dissident who was imprisoned by Putin; Ivan Krastev, an Academic and European politics expert; and Michael McFaul, a former U.S. ambassador to Russia. The panel is chaired by Jonathan Freedland, a Guardian columnist, broadcaster, and author.
