I have no ties to the Russian government. This was me *reporting* what several of my contacts who are average Russians living in different parts of Russia think about sanctions and the war as of the date on the piece. If I changed what these people said to reflect the audience here’s preferences, then that would be propaganda. The degree to which these people’s views are the result of Russian propaganda or other factors is beyond the purview of the piece. This reporting was for informational purposes. Information is useful to report regardless of whether people like the information itself or not.

On September 27, 2018, Yale’s Program in Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies, and the Poynter Fellowship for Journalism hosted Vladimir Pozner, the acclaimed Russian-American journalist and broadcaster. Pozner spoke on the impact of US foreign policy towards Russia after the Soviet Union had been disbanded, and shared his opinions on a range of issues raised by the audience, from the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential elections, to Skripal poisoning, to the state of independent media in Russia and the US.
