In his final Power Vertical podcast for Rferl on 30th March, Brian Whitmore (with Mark Galeotti) looks back over 7 years of covering Russia and what has happened, what was got right and what was got wrong, covering things like the Pussy Riot case, the rise of Aleksei Navalny, the Russian annexation of Crimea and intervention in the Donbas, and Vladimir Putin’s hybrid war on the West.  Always interesting, this perhaps even more so in light of recent developments, putting matters more in perspective and context.  Apparently, the podcast will continue in some form.
