Lessons from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine
Misha Zelinsky is a special correspondent with the Australian Financial Review. From February to April 2022, Zelinsky reported from the ground on the war in Ukraine. In this episode of 15 Minutes in DC, he and host Hayley Channer discuss whether the war could have been avoided and if there is a way to engage with a dictator.
