Vlad the invader: how Putin became a pariah
Play • 29 min

Was the invasion of Ukraine by Russia inevitable?

Were the plans of Vladimir Putin always there out in the open?

Does this all go back to 1989, when a KGB officer in Dresden saw the Soviet Empire begin to crumble and felt bitter at its inability to fight for itself?

Today, we speak to the historian, Professor Mary Elise Sarotte, the author of “Not One Inch: America, Russia, and the Making of Post-Cold War Stalemate,” about the life and mind of the Russian leader who has upended the world order in mere weeks.
