Christoph Stefes Weighs In on Ukraine and Russia

Published: March 3, 2022

Political Science Professor Christoph Stefes said in an interview he believes the Russian invasion of Ukraine may have been in the works for months or years and that it would be hard to judge exactly how sanctions will affect Putin and Russia. “I’ve seen Putin’s speeches in the last few days. I feel that he becomes more and more unhinged. It becomes less and less rational. And it becomes so obvious what this is all about,” Stefes said. “This has nothing to do with the West circling Russia. It has all to do with Russia trying to come back and revive the glory of the Soviet Union when it built its empire after the Bolshevik Revolution.”
