Coming up on this month's Intelligence Squared US Debate - Russia is a marginal power.

Disarming Syria. Asylum for Edward Snowden. Arming Iran. Is Vladimir Putin flexing his muscles, while our own president fades into the background of world politics, or is it all a global game of smoke and mirrors? Russia is one of the world's largest oil producers and has the power of veto on the U.N. Security Council, but it remains an authoritarian state, rife with corruption and economic struggles. Is our toxic relationship something to worry about, or is Putin's Russia fading in importance?  Join us for the discussion on Sunday March 30 at 7:00pm on witf 89.5/93.3.
