Putin’s Grand Design? Next Move?
HCC Expert Can Discuss

Now that Ukrainian troops have driven pro-Russian separatists from an airport in Eastern Ukraine, the world awaits Russian President Vladimir Putin’s next move. Will he give troops amassed along the Ukrainian border the order to invade the country? What’s his grand design? Is he trying to bring former Soviet republics under the Russian mantle? Will he move into countries like Estonia to “protect” ethnic Russians? Will he move into Central Asia to do the same thing? Housatonic Community College History Professor Kevin Boylan of Hamden, a former Pentagon subcontractor with extensive knowledge of NATO and European defense issues, can address these and other questions related to politics in the region.
