Hubris : the origins of Russia's war against Ukraine

Haslam, Jonathan2024
Books, Manuscripts
On the 24th of February 2022, Russia invaded Ukraine in an escalation of the Russo-Ukraine conflict that began eight years earlier. But the roots of the conflict began long before that historic date. After the fall of communism, politicians, professors and the public thought that democracy would spread to Eastern Europe and that these countries would share European values and beliefs. However, all concerned underestimated the effect on Russia - especially the expansion of NATO. In 'Hubris', Jonathan Haslam, one of the world's greatest experts on Russian foreign policy and espionage, examines with chilling realism and caustic wit one of the most intractable issues of our time.
