Podcast: Russia and the West since 1991: a tale of growing distrust

Podcast: Russia and the West since 1991: a tale of growing distrust

However, Russians – not just their government – had come to view international institutions with profound distrust as having deceived them in both the economic and diplomatic spheres.
