The Invention of Russia: The Journey from Gorbachev's Freedom to Putin's War

The end of communism and the breakup of the Soviet Union was a time of euphoria around the world. It was hoped that this new Russia would be more open and more democratic. How did we go from the promise of these heady days to a Russia that has given cause for concern in the West?

Arkady Ostrovksy, a native son, introduces us to those who have been responsible for the course of the events since the collapse of the Soviet Union. What were the turning points that led to this new era?

Ostrovsky is Russia and East European editor for The Economist and the author of The Invention of Russia.
