PODCAST: Buchanan + Manning on why Putin has exhausted the support of his natural allies


A View from Afar – In this podcast, political scientist Paul Buchanan and Selwyn Manning discuss the ongoing Russian attacks against Ukraine, including:

Whether the Russian Federation’s president Vladimir Putin has lost the support of significant leaders of allied nations, and if so what does this mean for Russia as a global power?

We also discuss the enduring impact of Oligarch wealth being frozen in Switzerland and the SWIFT international banking system blocking funds transfers to and from Russia.

And finally, we examine the status of the European Union and NATO as a military force opposing Putin’s Russia, and whether Russian generals eventually confront Putin’s power.
