While many observers see Vladimir Putin as a 'man from nowhere' without a face, substance, or soul, our guest today argues that he has had a number of personas over time. His public relations team has pitched him as everything from 'outsider' to 'history man' to suit the historical moment. Understanding these personalties, she argues, is key to making policy decisions about Russia.

Guest:

  • Fiona Hill, director of the Center on the United State and Europe and a senior fellow in the Foreign Policy program at the Brookings Institution.
