Radio Voice of Russia Interview

Aug. 12, 2014: On the Air with Radio Voice of Russia: Michael P. Malloy was interviewed on Radio Voice of Russia — live from Moscow — to talk about U.S. and European Union sanctions against Russia and Russia’s recent counter-sanctions. Dr. Malloy argued that the sanctions were now in stasis and would not be significantly increased or withdrawn so long as no dramatic actions intervened. Asked who, ultimately, would be the winner in this confrontation, he responded that "Eastern Europe ... will be the winner, because a heightened sensitivity to the importance of the region and the engagement of the attention of the broader community of nations would advance the long-term interests of the region as a whole." Dr. Malloy is currently at work on his new book "Structure of Economic Sanctions" to be published by Cambridge University Press in 2015. Listen to the interview.
