The attempted coup against Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev in 1991 failed, but today’s Russian regime owes more to the plotters than their democratic opponents. In this CER podcast episode, Ian Bond, our director of foreign policy, speaks to Georgetown University's Angela Stent and Igor Yurgens of Moscow's Institute for Contemporary Development, to discuss the lessons the West should draw from the event.
