The Red Line

Dec 11, 2022

This year Russia has watched their geopolitical position within the region sink from bad to worse, and now there is a brand new issue facing Moscow, with the Russian version of NATO, the CSTO (Collective Security Treaty Organisation), facing a crisis of confidence.

So what happens now, will the organisation disband, will an outside power like China take over the reins, or will it simply continue to evaporate slowly? We ask our panel of experts:

On the panel this week:
- Steven Pifer (Stanford)
- Temur Umarov (Carnegie)
- Raffaello Pantucci (RSIS)
