Palladium Podcast 72: Richard Hanania on the U.S.-Russia Rivalry

Kremlin/Joint exercises of Northern and Black Sea fleets, 2020

Richard Hanania joins Ash Milton to talk about the U.S. confrontation with Russia and why it keeps enduring. With the U.S. keeping the door open for future NATO expansion in eastern Europe, Russia is continuing its own military build-up in the region. Most recently, tensions rose again over Ukraine and its future. What drives the ideologies behind the foreign policy? And what does it really take to update entrenched political worldviews?

Richard Hanania is President of the Center for the Study of Partisanship and Ideology (CSPI) and a research fellow at Defense Priorities. He also writes via Substack.
