Is Russia All Alone on the Playground?

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Evgeny Morozov comes up with two big points about Russia and how it views its role in the world:

    Echoing Vladimir Bukovsky, Morozov laments Moscow’s inability to come to terms with its past, which frustrates contemporaries’ efforts to define their relationships with Russia.

    “Prime Minister” Vladimir Putin’s vision is more Eurasian than the PRC’s, even considering Russia’s high-profile, but low-value “friendships” with Hugo Chavez and Cuba.

Both points make me wonder if Moscow, for all its hobbled infrastructure and military bureaucracies, isn’t more dangerous than an increasingly confident PRC.
