Putin's tragic genius: war crimes & isolated Russia
In a Global Stage delegate interview, on the ground in Davos, Ian Bremmer speaks to an old friend of the show, former Finnish PM Alexander Stubb. Stubb explains why Crimea is crucial for Ukraine's conception of "victory" against Russia and why Finland views its eastern neighbor with suspicion.
“If you have a 1,340-kilometer border with Russia, you always have be concerned because, as we can see, Russia is quite unpredictable,” he explains.
As a global citizen with many friends in Russia, Stubb says that he's looking at years, if not decades, of Russian isolation, which he calls "a sad reality, but a reality nevertheless.”
