Stan is a regular Russian guy with an opinion that he shares via his YouTube channel.
I stumbled across a viral video of his, in which he gives a savage breakdown of the West’s response to Russia’s “invasion” of Ukraine. (According to Dmitry Orlov, it was not an invasion.)
Stan joined me for a frank conversation about living in Russia; the sentiment; Western media’s hypocrisy; the failure of sanctions; and why Putin’s actions were justified.
For additional context, I recommend listening to my conversations with Kees Van Der Pijl and Richard Sakwa.
And also watch my short film about eastern Ukraine.
