    Andrew S. Weiss April 9, 2014 Daily Show with Jon Stewart

    Putin Says “No Need for Use of Force” in Ukraine
    Maria Lipman March 6, 2014 ABC

    Lilia Shevtsova December 17, 2013 euronews

    Russia Divided
    Alexey Malashenko November 11, 2014 Русский

    The ethno-religious tensions in Russia have subsided a bit in 2014, because the Ukrainian conflict has shifted the xenophobic sentiments from an internal to an external adversary.

    Maria Snegovaya November 4, 2014

    Hong Kong Turmoil: Unintended Consequences for Russian Companies
    Alexander Gabuev October 8, 2014

    For Russian business interests who use Hong Kong as a base for operations in mainland China or the Asia-Pacific region, or are listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (HKEx), prodemocracy demonstrations were bad news.

    The West Is Losing Russia
