Were the protests in Ukraine that led to the removal of the Yanukovych regime a harbinger of things to come in Russia, or was the Russian incursion into Crimea a precursor of future Russian expansion? To explore the latest developments in Ukraine and Russia, we featureone of the world’s most prominent commentators on Russia, David Satter. A senior fellow of FPRI and the Hudson Institute, Satter has been a student of Russia and the Soviet Union for four decades, first as a correspondent for the London Financial Times, then for the Wall Street Journal, and subsequently as a representative of more than one think tank. He was serving Radio Liberty in Russia since August 2013 until his expulsion from Russia in January 2014. Satter is author of three books – Age of Delirium: the Decline and Fall of the Soviet Union (Knopf, 1996); Darkness at Dawn: the Rise of the Russian Criminal State (Yale 2003), and It was Long Ago and It Never Happened Anyway: Russia and Her Communist Past (Yale, 2011). His books have been translated into Russian, Estonian, Latvian, Czech, Portuguese and Vietnamese. Age of Delirium has also been made into a prizewinning documentary film.
