Power Vertical Podcast Ep. 42

We’ve got continued fallout from a nuclear accident with echoes of Chernobyl; we’ve got tensions between Moscow and Russia’s largest ethnic group; we’ve got the Kremlin playing footsie with a wayward NATO ally; we’ve got fresh U.S. sanctions on Russia; and we’ve got two prominent U.S. Senators banned from Russia.

It may be Labor Day weekend here in the U.S. and it may still be the August “cucumber season” in Russia but we’ve got lots going on and lots to talk about, so listen as Brian Whitmore and Donald N. Jensen discuss the latest Moscow miscellany on the Power Vertical podcast episode 42.
