Connections: Updates on U.S.-Russian relations


In October, one of the last independent news outlets in Russia was going to be shut down. Instead, the editor raised 22 million rubles in four days to pay the government's ostensible fine.

On Connections, we sit down with a frequent guest who studies Russia and US-Russian relations. Professor Randy Stone is back from a trip to Russia, where he met with the editor of the New Times, as well as Sergei Kislyak, the former ambassador who has been in the center of recent investigations. Stone discusses the state of information warfare, how it's viewed in Russia, and more. He's the director of the Skalny Center for Polish and Central European Studies at the University of Rochester.
