Academic Interview 12: Putin’s Prophet
Nikolai Starikov is something of a Shaman. An insider with the ear of the Kremlin, he has upended conventional thinking about history. In his view, Hitler was no mere tyrant, but the tool of a grander Anglo-American scheme to dismember Russia. A crazy conspiracy theory? Perhaps. But Starikov is no Alex Jones. Like many of us, he sees something sinister in the West’s current predicament. And his explanations are always one step ahead.

Since then, we’ve witnessed a civil war in the Donbass, with plenty of involvement from the Great Powers–NATO and Russia. The struggle is titanic, and far from resolved.
Vincent Law outlines the players and the facts. What do we know about the politicians, the commanders and the oligarchs on both sides? What is Ukraine’s role in the grand geopolitical game? Join him and Greg Ritter as they explore the conflict, its origins, and its possible outcome.
Ritter alludes to Russia’s despoilment in the ’90s at the hands of Lawrence Summers and his cronies. The best place to start is Steve Sailer’sÂ “The Real Larry Summers Scandal” andÂ “The Rape of Russia Explained by Anne Williamson.”
