Russia’s political prisoners

Human rights in Russia are in a dire state, and now even punitive psychiatry is making a comeback, as I argued in my first column of 2018 for the Europe’s Edge page on the CEPA website.

Russia’s farcical election

We’ll be reading a lot about a Russian presidential election this year. But as I argued in this piece for Europe’s Edge on the CEPA website, we should call this episode of political theatre by its real name: a farce.

Germany

Whether Germany likes it or not, it now bears responsibility for European security, I argued in my column on Europe’s Edge, on the CEPA website, in December 2017.

Chinese lessons

Britain is belatedly waking up to Russian influence-peddling. In my Times column in December 2017 I suggested that the Chinese threat in the antipodes might be instructive.

Next generation infowar

Disinformation is just one weapon in the Kremlin’s arsenal. But the worst is yet to come, as I argued in my column for Europe’s Edge on the CEPA website, in December 2017.

The age of blur

Blurred boundaries are not as new as we think, I argued in my column for Europe’s Edge on the CEPA website in November 2017.

Russia’s self-defeating policies

Russia’s policies seem to be self-defeating. So why does Vladimir Putin’s regime pursue them?
