She’s Nina Khrushcheva, great-granddaughter of the former Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev. She joins host Tim Sebastian from New York, where she’s a professor of international affairs at the New School.
Khrushcheva has met Russian President Vladimir Putin. What was it that took him all the way to the most powerful office in Russia? And can the West ever deal again with him?
