Chthonia Conversations welcomes back Joanna Madloch (Baba Yaga episode of Chthonia) to discuss the archaic nature of what we call "Slavic Paganism". The Slavs do not have a "mythology" per se, there are a collection of archaic folktales, mostly of "bestiairusz," which bear a similarity to old school fairies (not the cutesy Victorian creatures). We talk about the origins of these myths, the lack of sources, and the way in the Slavs resisted Christianity for many years. Indeed, these archaic vestiges of Slavic religion still permeate folk practices in Slavic countries today, and we also look at the ways in which conquerors have tried to impose a "Pan-Slavism" (including Russia's attempts today) and modern re-emergences of the old religion in Poland and other countries.

Running 12500km from the Arctic Circle to the borders of Greece, the European Greenbelt is one of the most ambitious conservation schemes ever devised. The idea was to use the no man's land of the Iron Curtain that divided Communist East from Capitalist West as a wildlife corridor to allow rare and endangered species to travel unimpeded across the continent. On the 20th anniversary of the Greenbelt, the writer and anthropologist, Mary-Ann Ochota takes to the road, from the industrialised peat bogs of Finland through the Baltic states and Germany's dying forests to the peasant farms of the southern Balkans. The wildlife of these borderlands is rich and varied but the conservationists feel that they're battling forces bigger than those that created the Iron Curtain in the first place.

Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss the republic that emerged from the union of the Kingdom of Poland and Grand Duchy of Lithuania in the 14th Century. At first this was a personal union, similar to that of James I and VI in Britain, but this was formalised in 1569 into a vast republic, stretching from the Baltic to the Black Sea. Kings and princes from across Europe would compete for parliament to elect them King and Grand Duke, and the greatest power lay with the parliaments. When the system worked well, the Commonwealth was a powerhouse, and it was their leader Jan Sobieski who relieved the siege of Vienna in 1683, defeating the Ottomans. Its neighbours exploited its parliament's need for unanimity, though, and this contributed to its downfall. Austria, Russia and Prussia divided its territory between them from 1772, before the new, smaller states only emerged in the 20th Century.

My name is Miķelis Baštiks, and this is Asketic Podcast, where we discuss design and branding. This time we're meeting illustrator Roberts Rūrāns and talk about how to develop your signature style from street art to medieval art and find global clients while working here in Latvia.I've always really liked to draw, and that's essentially illustration, creation of images.But you didn't start out as a professional illustrator. At first you were doing large-scale graffiti on the streets. I'm interested to hear your retrospective view on how you went from painting large-scale pictures on to painting with extremely fine brushes, going from the utmost maximal to the utmost minimal scale. You started out as a designer, you worked as an in-house illustrator at an agency, now you're an independent freelance illustrator. How did you find yourself on this path to illustration and to realizing this is what you want to do? As I've mentioned before, this path began in early childhood. Drawing has always been my favorite activity, which I did in my free time and not so free time. My parents took me to art schools, and I positioned myself on this trajectory. It seemed like the natural path to take. To draw or create something on a plane. It progressed step by step until I found myself in Jānis Rozentāls Art School. When I finished this Secondary School, I applied to the Art Academy of Latvia but didn't get in at first. Then in England. When it comes to the occupation, I've never considered an alternative scenario for my life.For a while you were a designer. Yes, I was, because back then I knew only of caricaturists, which meant satirical and political cartoons, but that didn't particularly captivate me. I also knew of designers, who work with visuals, but only occasionally do drawings.There are also painters.Exactly, there are painters and artists, who create whatever they want at their studio, organize exhibitions and sell their work. And I wasn't really aware of illustrators, who essentially are commercial artists. Once I enrolled in the Art Academy, I realized I need to get to know this industry better. Like, who are these people that are artists, but also are able to earn something and pay their bills? Those obviously are designers. I'd say I got lucky. I ended up here, in Asketic, a while ago, as you remember.Do you remember the turning point when you chose illustrations over design as your primary pursuit?It actually happened here. When you do other things, you realize what you don't like and that you want to do something else. Here I realised that I lack design skills and that the most enjoyable tasks are the ones where I have to draw something by hand, where I have to come up with ideas for illustrations. You also mentioned my interest in street art, which I've had since being 14. I was influenced by friends and art school. It was a task which grew into a long-time interest. That also played a huge part in me choosing a career of an illustrator. It captivated me so much that I felt I could do it forever.As a professional illustrator, what do you now think of street art and 16-year-olds who create it? If I'm being serious, it was something that I needed at that age, but later people mostly grow out of the interests of their youth or transform them into something more mature.In your street art period, you painted with completely different tools in a large scale, but now your works are particularly small-scale even for an illustrator. Firstly, you draw by hand and, secondly, you use really fine brushes. What do you think of this contrast?Upon reflection, it shows how much I've changed or moved away in my thinking from the place I was back then. I've remained on the same path of visual expression and illustrations, but my way of thinking is completely different. Perfectionism was prominent back then as well. I needed all lines to be neat, they couldn't be wobbly or blurry. Lines and areas had to be sharp. Such visual nuances have remained.Since you primarily paint by hand and not digitally and since you have a tendency towards perfectionism, it would seem that a digital image could be modified much more easily, thus allowing you to attain perfection. What do you do, when you draw by hand? Do you start from scratch or use the eraser? How do you handle yourself?Nowadays there's this beautiful super-eraser called Photoshop, which forgives many mistakes. I have a balance between “perfect” and “non-sterile perfect”, so the human touch is still felt. You have to understand what perfection means to you.When you realized you'll become an illustrator, what made you decide to mostly illustrate by hand – on the paper with real brushes and real paints?That happened gradually. I tried a lot of things, including technical, before I arrived at my current style. I've studied graphics at the Art Academy, I've tried various techniques of graphics, which also involve working by hand. I've also drawn lots of things digitally in various styles. It's been an evolution. By trying these various things, my intuition has told me what are the specific aspects which I like and which I'm ready to continue applying. And those which I dislike.Illustrators represent an interesting position between designers and artists, where you work on orders, but simultaneously you have your own vision and signature, which is the reason why you get chosen and receive orders. You're not an artist, who creates based on their whims, but you're neither a designer who has to be able to work in various styles, and, even if you can, you have chosen your own signature. How do you see your balance between professional occupation, artistic ambition and your developed signature style?This is a very good characterization. I've also said this about illustrators – it's art with a task.When I looked through your website, I saw that your signature style has developed from minimalistic, geometric shapes into an interpretation of medieval art. Do you create your signature intentionally or allow yourself to flow? What happens when people, who knew you six months or a year ago and made an order back then, return as clients? Do you draw in your previous style or you insist that it will look differently now?Yes, I'm in a transitional stage. It's a good question. As you said, it can be seen on my website. There's more simplistic, even minimalist, stuff at the bottom, but now my works are rich in detail. In this transitional stage I still have clients who request my previous type of work. Depending on the task and all other criteria, I either agree or say “No, thank you”.So you do assess the request. You're not willing to apply the style from a previous artistic stage.It depends. Sometimes I am, if the other criteria are quite good.Primarily, financial?Yes, primarily.It's an actual aspect of the topics usually discussed on this podcast. We talk about design, business and branding. These things relate to you as an illustrator as well. You represent an intermediate stage between designers and artists, it is an occupation that lets you earn money and you're also developing your brand. The matter of your signature style also contributes to your branding process. It's one way for a designer and different for an artist. You have the privilege to set out your own path, but, at the same time, the orders you receive tend to direct you in one way or another.It's an old truth that what you show to the world is what others start to want from you. As a literal example, I've worked for the Olympics with an illustration of a sportsman. After that I had several clients from the sports industry who were interested in collaboration. In one interview you mentioned that it's important for artists to show their work, actively participate in competitions and be present on social media. You can't just sit and wait for clients. Many artists probably feel like their job is done once they complete the piece of art. How do you divide your time between creating art, preparing invoices and showing your work in public?It's very unstructured. My calendar day is not split up in hours, I go with the flow, but each part of the work certainly takes its time. I truly believe you have to show your work to people, so they know you exist. And you have to do it regularly. I might not be the best example of this. The perfectionism in me sometimes keeps me back from showing some content. That's not good. I would advise showing even unpolished stuff, work in progress. Nowadays, when it comes to showing yourself, it's mostly about the quantity, not the quality.You're one of the rare creative professionals who understands that you don't have to do everything by yourself. You have not one, but several agents, who allow you to reach the global market. How did you come to that realization? Tell me how it works.I have other helpers, like my accountant, who significantly alleviates my work. I realized that after researching other global illustrators. I saw that it's standard practice. I watched interviews with agents or artists speaking about agents to better understand what that means. I realized it's a good way to reach foreign markets and fight for provisions that are favourable to you on the business side of things. The agent represents me, namely, tries to get the best deal for me. That improves the financial side. The aspect of rights is resolved, whether the client buys or leases my work. The agent takes over the accounting part, sends out invoices, collects money, all that side of things. Essentially does everything, except creates the work. Also does all communication with clients.Can you tell me about the provisions? One would think you just draw a picture and get paid. End of story. You've established the culture very well, where it's not just a binary activity, draw-pay. There are various stages, various criteria. Can you walk me through it? Let's say, I'm an entrepreneur who wants to order your illustration. What are the criteria that make up these provisions?Unless you had told me in the first e-mail everything you want, I would ask you the terms of reference. What exactly you want me to draw, how much, in what time, whether you have a budget in mind or you want me to make an offer? In order to understand the financial side, I'd like to know the ways you intend to use my work. Is it for an event, a website or a longer campaign? Or do you want to acquire all rights and own my work? Following on from that, I or my agent will offer some budget options.Meaning, if I'd like to get one poster for my high school party, the price would be one, but if I wanted to print 100 000 copies of it for boxes of packaging, the price would be different?Yes, exactly. It's not very common in Latvia, since the industry is still new here. Little time has passed since the restoration of independence. But it's a global norm that the artists can indeed sell their rights and their work, but mostly clients lease it. They buy the rights to use it for a certain period of time or type of use. If the client, who you've printed the high school poster for, says he would actually like to use the same illustration for another upcoming event, then the client would ask for a permission to do so and the price for it. If we as artists know that we own our work, we can…Make it work for us?Yes, it can create a passive income. After a while, if the provisions agreed upon with the original client allow it, I can sell the rights to use the same work to others or to the same client for other applications and so on.Could you tell me about the process? Not for pro bono works for local friends. You've worked with quite many global clients and publications. Do they come to you with a clear idea? For example, do they ask you to draw these two people doing this activity, but in your style? Or do they tell you the theme and leave the portrayal up to you, let's say, in one sketch or ten? Do you prepare one tiny sketch or a whole presentation?Tasks tend to differ. There are clients with a clear vision and there are clients who are open to my interpretation of their rough idea. It's best when it's something in-between. You have the artistic freedom, but it's also clear that they know what they want. As for the work process itself, I initially research the theme, so I have a better idea of what I should portray. In the first stage I send out rough, even sloppy sketches that mostly just communicate the idea and concept options. Then the client makes a choice or we find the direction the client wants to take through discussion. I then develop this idea to the next level. First level is a postmark-sized sketch with pen in a notebook.Postmark-sized? Really that small?Yes, it's nothing visual, just gives you the idea. The next level is when I turn this postmark into a postcard, which is bigger and now has a clear composition of how it will look in the end. The third level is a colourful sketch. The composition is refined even more, and it's clear what colours will be used where. This stage is done digitally. Then comes client's approval, some adjustments and then we move on to the final product –a water-colour painting on paper, which, of course, is the best part of the job. The client has only seen the colourful digital sketch with vectors and coloured areas. People have told me that it looks complete and ready-to-use already in that stage. I tell them to wait for a little bit. And when I send them the final work they go “Wow!”. You see the textures. It's flat, but not digital-flat. Overall, it creates a cool impression.Is it still digital? You probably don't send them the physical copy by mail.Yes, in the end it's still digital. I paint it, scan it and send them the file.What was the turning point when you realized you can not only do this for your friends and concerts or create this as a by-product for some visual identity, but that you can work globally as a professional illustrator?The first big successes cemented my confidence that I'm capable and that it's something of value, something that people want and is necessary. But how did that happen? You were drawing your first orders. When was the first breakthrough?I think it's when I was noticed. My first foreign client was Vogue.That's an interesting jump. You're a new illustrator from Riga and then suddenly –– Vogue. I'm inclined to believe there was something in-between. I would like to understand what happened after you decided to become an illustrator –s and many people do, they start drawing, post images on Instagram, but it's not like the next step for everyone is Vogue.They noticed me, but before that I was noticed by “It's Nice That”.Okay, and how did they notice you? Did you send something to them or did they discover you?No, they discovered me. I usually don't send anything, okay, no, I have sent some things, but they did notice me.What did they notice? Your website or Instagram account?It was one specific project that was created in collaboration with “Kus!”. There was this workshop that had artists from the Great Britain collaborating with new Latvian artists to create some short stories.So the first project was non-commercial?Yes.And it was noticed by media?That often is the key – to create something that fascinates you and that you can have fun with. You can push the boundaries of your abilities. It might not be commercialized in this exact form, but the client who would want something less bold will see that you can be really bold, interesting and captivating. They might commission you for a boring job, but they need that confidence that you're a cool guy. So, I was noticed by “It's Nice That” and afterwards the bigger clients started to appear, Vogue being the first one. It's like stairs – you complete one project and it gets noticed by someone else and so on.Is there a system for how you make people take notice of you? Do you post on Instagram and wait for people to call you?Yes, I just post on Instagram and wait.And the waiting has been successful so far?Yes, it has.Very good. How many years have you worked as a professional illustrator?For about seven or eight years.How do you see yourself in ten years? Won't you get bored of drawing? Or is it the way you develop your style and what you will continue doing as long as your hands allow it?Yes, as long as my hands allow it, I will continue doing it. Hopefully I will develop my technique even more. Like you said in the beginning, I used to do large-scale street art, but now I work with very fine brushes, so it's interesting how it will develop further. I go with the flow and follow my interests.It would be quite nice if you painted the façade of some house, but with your current experience and vision.Yes, I have thought of that.If a listener has a façade available for this purpose, let us know.Sure!You'd be willing to do that?Yes, maybe I would.Okay. You have projects where you create posters for summer concerts. You also create illustrations for the New York Magazine. It's clear that the budget and provisions are not the same in both cases. Tell me about the balance between these two projects, where you earn something or create things for different reasons. What's your inner motivation? Why do you do one and the other?As you said, these motivations can vary. There always are three main motivations, namely, financial – the size of budget, then how interesting the project will be – easy, difficult, cool, fun or boring to do, and then the client – their brand, name, how easy or difficult it will be to collaborate, other obstacles. After weighing out this combination, I make a decision on each collaboration. When it comes to collaborations that aren't motivated by the financial aspect and the client's name, such criteria as friendship with the client plays a big role, as it was in the case of concert posters. Or I just know that it will be very cool to work on the specific project because of the huge creative freedom. Besides, I will really like the end-result. You don't say “No” to small, interesting projects.Yes, exactly.Is it different working for global clients? Do they work with a different attitude and implement different processes that we can apply here, in Riga? Or is the world small and everyone works in the same way?There are global clients who work with illustrators a lot, for example, the media. It's the daily life for them. New York Times, I believe, publishes illustrations every day. It's simple with them. They know what to expect from you and you from them. The critique is quick and constructive, and the deadlines are very short.What is a short deadline? Hours, days, weeks?Usually a few days. Once it was one day. From working with illustrators, they've realized that some illustrators work quicker, some slower. No one has asked me to create something in 3 hours, because they see I wouldn't be able to do that, so I don't get such requests. I have had a two-day deadline, which was very stressful for me.I read you're currently studying the drawings of medieval monks.Yes, that's what excites me at the moment. It's the case when your interests from outside the art world also takes the artistic and creative side there. I'm interested in Christianity, mainly traditional Christianity lately. It has a very rich art history. I'm also interested in history. The more I research it, the more my visual side follows course.What would you like to see more of in contemporary illustrations? What would you like to see less of?More personal approach to the visual side and less following trends. Trends are cool and you can get inspired by them and you should get inspired by them to an extent in order to be current. However, there has to be a good balance with a big touch of personality. If not personality, then something that the artist is really good at. I would like to see a more individual approach, and not being afraid of analogue techniques. I, for example, do paintings. My favourite artists, who I follow, are often the ones who work with hands, and it's not on purpose. I just find the aesthetics so interesting. There's this British girl who creates all her illustrations with linocuts. It adds the texture, the liveliness. Her style is quite peculiar. At first it seems very specific. Namely, who would want to pay for this? It's like liquorice. Not everyone likes liquorice, but some do. Since the internet allows us to work with clients worldwide, we can find a lot of people who love liquorice. It's okay, if we can't find that many locally. That adds personality and character to such works. Those are the artists I follow. For example, there's an artist in South Korea who draws everything with coloured pencils. He draws in realism, but it turns out really cool.

In This EpisodeYou'll hear JCK editor-in-chief Victoria Gomelsky and news director Rob Bates talk with Eric Ku, watch “super dealer,” cofounder of Loupe This, and founder of 10 Past Ten and Los Angeles Watchworks. Eric recounts the origin story of when he first started his collection of mechanical watches, the beginnings of watch-collecting on the internet, the evolving relationship between brands and the pre-owned market, and he names a few micro-brands that have yet to get their due.Show Notes02:20 – The hosts introduce Eric Ku04:20 – How Eric came to own his first watches08:10 – The early days of the internet and online watch collecting10:15 – Eric's main business focuses15:00 – Brands' relationships with the secondhand market20:45 – How Loupe This got started25:00 – Some great lesser-known watch brands27:30 – Eric's first watch, “the one that got away”Episode CreditsHosts: Rob Bates and Victoria GomelskyProducer and engineer: Natalie ChometPlugs: loupethis.com, 10pastten.com, lawatchworks.com, @jckmagazine, JCKonlineShow RecapEric's Watch Origin StoryEric talks about where his love of watches came from. He subscribed to National Geographic and always noticed the Rolex ad on the back cover. In particular, he has been interested in mechanical watches and the history behind them. While in college at the University of California, Berkeley, Eric didn't find a lot of others who shared his interest, however.When Eric came into some money playing the stock market in college, it allowed him to buy some of his first nice watches. Soon after, he lost that same fortune the same way he had made it and had to sell them all. In a way, this quickly introduced him to both sides of the watch-selling business.Eric's first watch? An Omega Speedmaster Automatic with a clear display back. Back when he had purchased it, it cost him $999. At the time, he thought that this price was the benchmark for a “nice” watch. His first vintage watch was a Rolex Red Submariner. He got it in Columbus, Ohio, at an NAWCC (National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors) show. From the beginning, Eric had been drawn to Rolex because of the brand's tie to feats of human ingenuity dating back to the 1930s.The Watch Market Now and ThenDuring the early days of the internet and internet watch collecting, his friends used to fax pictures of watches to him! It was an active scene. He talked to other collectors online. He looked at other sites to learn about watches. The commercial part of it was at trade shows, not online yet. NAWCC would have a show in Pasadena, Calif., twice a year. He would attend these regional shows, walk around, meet people, and all the trading would happen there.Eric's Collection of Watch BusinessesWhat are Eric's main business focuses? He started 10 Past Ten in the early 2000s, which is a website that sells vintage Rolex sport watches. This is one of the segments that is most heavily collected. It started as a part-time job. After a “moment of clarity,” he gave notice at his day job, rented an office, and never looked back.Six years ago, Eric partnered with his friend Beau Goorey and started Los Angeles Watchworks, a repair and restoration business for fine Swiss watches based in Pasadena. They are known for their cosmetic work on watches, preserving the original look and feel while catering to the whims of watch collectors.How does he handle counterfeits? With these fine vintage watches, it's all in the details. There are specific tiny details that are not always original. With vintage watches, you won't see a counterfeit that is perfect. It's harder to replicate watches that are handmade.Brands Embracing the Secondhand MarketThough they used to thumb their noses at it, brands are increasingly embracing the pre-owned market. Eric gives the example of Richemont, which bought Watchfinder (a secondhand watch business on the internet), and they slowly integrated it into their dealer network. They'll look at trade-in watches and accept a customer's trade-in as credit toward a new purchase. With new watches, there is a keystone. The margins are thinner for secondhand watches. Eric notes that the lack of availability of some new watches is an interesting factor. It benefits these brands to offer pre-owned watches, so that there is still some inventory.Primary and Secondary Market InterplayVictoria asks about the relationship between the primary and secondary markets. When there's nothing available in the primary channel, people flood the secondary market with demand, and prices rise to extreme heights. Now that the prices for these hyped watches are going back down in the secondary market, what is Eric seeing in the primary? Does he see a link between the two? Eric has not seen interest in the primary market cooling just yet. Most authorized dealers would likely agree, they continue to have a waiting list for certain models of new watch. He notices that the retail prices of these watches are much lower than their market value.What accounts for this growth of the watch market? Eric thinks it's a mixed bag. The company-owned boutique model with fewer third-party partners has affected the supply. Back in the day, it was expected that you would go into a jewelry store and negotiate the price. Now, people don't go to a brand boutique expecting a deal on a designer watch. On the consumer side, watch collecting used to be niche, but over time, the fashion world has embraced vintage things. That has moved the needle. Fashion magazines have watch writers. It's different from even just 10 years ago.The Birth of Loupe ThisEric talks about his online auction company Loupe This, which he started with Justin Gruenberg. Both co-owners are deeply involved in the watch auction market. Because they're so familiar with it, they have their likes and dislikes about auctions. They didn't like how high fees were. Other examples: how long it takes to list and the predictable seasons, which have gaps of time when there aren't a lot of auctions. They created this platform that addressed many of their issues with in-person auctions. However, they don't intend to replace traditional auctions. There's an excitement about being in an auction room and watching everything happen. They do try to cater to a wider audience and have watches for sale every day.His Personal Collection and FavoritesVictoria asks Eric to share his hit list of brands that haven't gotten their due yet. It's hard to predict! He thinks that the market is good at predicting what is undervalued/overvalued and adjusts. He names a few micro brands and relatively affordable brands that are still under the radar: Kurono, Ming, and Baltic.How many watches does Eric have? Though he doesn't know the exact number, he says his collection is fairly focused. (He has more than his wife would like, he says!) He likes watches with a story. He tells the story of his first watch that he sold and tried to buy back. Though he did get it back, he paid a world-record price. When he got it, his original documents were all still with it! He now plans to save it for his son.

Stories From The Eastern West

In the very last episode of Stories of The Eastern West as you knew it, we're taking you to Estonia, 1989. A group of people there made 2 million others hold hands and create a human chain of unprecedented size and significance. The Baltic countries had a truly turbulent 20th century. They went from regaining their independence to losing it to the USSR and becoming subject to a ruthless policy of Russification. Unsurprisingly, they needed something big to jump on the bandwagon of the 1989 peaceful revolutions that liberated several countries from the USSR's influence.  What they came up with was a human chain linking Tallinn with Riga and Vilnius. This huge event is something hard to wrap one's head around nowadays when we think about the scanty means of communication the organisers had.  Our producer Wojciech went to Estonia and got a chance to talk to several people who co-organised or participated in the event. How was it at all possible? Why wasn't it thwarted by the communist regime? How do people remember such a defining moment in their lives over 30 years later?

Velnias or Velinas is a god of the Latvian velis or Lithuanian vles, which which can be compared to a modern day zombie. He is a one-eyed prophet who can raise whirlwinds and lead the souls of the dead through the skies. Like the Nordic or Germanic Wodan, he is similar to the Pickollos or Patollos from the Old Prussian and Lithuanian traditions.Velnias was the assistant of the gods but his legend contains more than that. In the earliest layer of Baltic mythology, Velnias was seen as one of the cosmological creator beings and as one of the creators of the material world. His connection to death and reincarnation dates back to prehistoric times and Baltic ancestral worship.Velnias could appear in various forms, and in most Baltic folk tales, shape sifting is a common element. He was associated with reptiles, birds, and animals. He could also take the form of people from different professions and ages.In folk tales, Velnias was described as a physically attractive man who seeks the love of women and sometimes even married them. Stories about Velnias and his relationship with women were very much disapproved by Christians which later on increased his questionable reputation.In folklore, Velnias is regarded as a creature that's capable of being both clever and stupid. Most commonly, it's described as an anthropomorphic creature that features a tail, horns, and a pair of hooved feet. However, since the devil in Christian beliefs was also depicted in this form, it's hard to tell the difference between the real and post-Christian version. Velnias is said to live in various locations, such as barns, ponds, caves, and marshlands. In folk tales, he is associated with stones, and he carries it in an attempt to throw it into a church.Read more at https://mythlok.com/velinas/

If you look at Russian actions in different regions of the world, their strategies differ considerably. This covers economic policies as well as foreign policy activities and military ones. From Africa to the Rimland, Moscow signals their intentions clearly, watches for reactions and then executes pretty nuanced plans. Nowhere is this clearer than in the different approaches Russia has been taking in the Arctic and Ukraine over the past 15 years. In this episode Peter is joined by Professor Katarzyna Zysk, from Norway's Institute for Defense Studies in Oslo, to talk about duality, rationality, logic, and pragmatism in Russia's national security decision-making. While there is an idea of muddling through in the Kremlin there is more depth at the organisational level than Western analysts give credit for. This has significant implications for discussions on things like regime change and ceasefires. Don't expect Moscow to stop behaving like Russia anytime soon; with or without Vladimir Putin at the helm.
