THE CABLE PODCAST: Belarus and the Kremlin

 

It’s no secret Russia is using campaigns of influence to confront Western democracies and their allies. But it’s also intensively seeking to undermine one of its own closest allies: Belarus. Greg speaks to the country’s leading opposition politician, Andrei Sannikov, about what’s going on in Belarus. Then he’s joined by Olga Kevere, Andrei Yeliseyeu and Jonathan Katz to discuss a new report detailing what they say is a major Kremlin campaign to coerce the country to give up its independence.
