‘The Russia Desk’ is a series about everything Russia: from Vladimir Putin’s government to the Russian people and culture, to its history with the United States. If you’re curious about Trump, Putin, Crimea, Syria, borscht, dashcams, sanctions, or more, this is the place for you. There’s a lot of misinformation out there about Russia, its government, and its sphere of influence — including U.S. elections. ‘The Russia Desk’ aims to separate fact from fiction with expert interviews, original analysis, and on-the-ground reporting. Pee tape not guaranteed.
