Russia Today
Last year Russian President Vladimir Putin appointed Dimitri Medvedev prime minister and reshuffled the cabinet. Now, Putin is the prime minister and Medvedev is president. Did you get that? But to what end was all this shuffling done? And what does Russia’s pro-Iran stand mean for the rest of the world? Some speculate the end of the democratic reform is at hand in Russia; while others think we might be headed for a new Cold War. Join us on Monday when we talk about the status of Russia today. This is a show from our archives, so we won’t be taking calls this hour.
