Geopolitical issues are extremely important to our understanding of the positions of the major players in this crisis.  In addition to geographic issues, governance, economics, and military capacities set boundaries for their respective roles. Dr. Rumer is well placed to enlighten us on these assessments, as he was, until earlier this year, our U.S. National Intelligence Officer for Russia and Eurasia. He has recently been appointed Director of the Russia and Eurasia Program at The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
