Next Year in Moscow | A brilliant podcast about Russia’s future | Arcady Ostrovsky | The Economist

Understand Russia through the insights of its free-thinkers in exile.

When the shelling of Ukraine began a year ago, free-thinking Russians faced a fateful choice: lie low, resist or flee. Hundreds of thousands decided to leave. For them the war meant the future of Russia itself was now in doubt.

In this eight-part series, The Economist’s Russia editor, Arkady Ostrovsky, finds out what happened to these exiles for a new podcast series. Their stories help solve the mystery of why this senseless war began – and how it might end.
