Putin Unlikely to Invade Ukraine Despite Overheated U.S. Rhetoric, Says Nina Khrushcheva

1 min read

U.S. and Russian officials are meeting today in Geneva as NATO calls on Russia to remove its troops from along the Ukrainian border. The Russian military has also mobilized soldiers to suppress protests in Kazakhstan. We go to Moscow to speak with Nina Khrushcheva, professor of international affairs at The New School, who says President Vladimir Putin is expanding Russia’s sphere of influence but will not invade Ukraine. “It’s not that he wants to take more territory. I think he wants to get heard,” says Khrushcheva. She also discusses the ongoing protests in Kazakhstan, where Russian troops have been deployed to shore up the Kremlin-aligned government.
