Power Vertical Podcast Ep. 43

Summer is almost over and the cucumber season may be in the past. But with the Russian street restless, local elections looming, and a heavy-handed Kremlin nervous, it promises to be a very hot autumn.

So let’s talk about it.

Listen as Maria Snegovaya, an adjunct fellow at CEPA and a postdoctoral fellow at Johns Hopkins University joins Brian Whitmore on the 43rd episode of the PowerVertical podcast.
