    Dmitri Trenin July 21, 2014 WBUR’s Here and Now

    A Battle For Russia
    Dmitri Trenin July 28, 2014

    The Kremlin now sees the U.S. goal as the toppling of the Putin regime. That said, expecting Putin to back off betrays a lack of understanding of the gravity of the situation. It is no longer just a struggle for Ukraine, but a battle for Russia.

    Why Haven’t We Talked to Putin?
    Eugene Rumer July 23, 2014 Boston Review

    Dmitri Trenin July 21, 2014

    MH17 may well be a turning point in the Ukraine conflict, but President Putin remains unlikely to back down despite economic pressure from the West. Russians may look back to the summer of 2014 years from now as a game changer.
