Robert Farley (Lawyers, Guns and Money, University of Kentucky) and Dmitry Gorenburg (Russian Military Reform, CNA)

On Foreign Entanglements, Rob speaks with Dmitry about US-Russian relations. Dmitry suggests that the causes of the summit cancellation go beyond Snowden, and Rob wonders whether the United States and Russia are stuck in an unproductive paradigm with respect to Syria. How has the Russian public responded to Snowden? Rob and Dmitry talk about the potential for an Olympic boycott in response to Russia’s “gay propaganda” law, then discuss recent changes in how the Russian military conducts readiness exercises.
