    From spy to president: the rise of Vladimir Putin

    He’s intent on pushing back against the Western world order … and it appears to be working. Vladimir Putin has been ruling Russia since 1999. In that time, he’s shaped the country into an authoritarian and militaristic society. Today, as president of Russia, he’s challenging the US-led Western world order by propping up...

    Trump’s Russia policy is scaring allies and confusing even the Kremlin

    No issue has given Donald Trump more grief than Russia. The Trump team’s controversial ties to the Kremlin forced the departure of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, got Attorney General Jeff Sessions into hot water, and kicked off an FBI investigation into Trump’s campaign. So you’d think Trump would have something to...

    The past week’s revelations about the Trump team’s Russia ties, explained

    The web of connections seems to grow thicker by the day. Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort stepped down last August in the wake of reports of his murky financial dealings with Russia-aligned Ukrainian leaders. Former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was pushed out of the White House in February after lying about his...

    President Trump appears unable to make a substantive case for the AHCA

    When he tries to sell it, he either talks politics or says Obamacare is bad. The fate of the Republican health bill in the House could rest on President Donald Trump’s salesmanship. He pitched himself as the ultimate deal-maker during the campaign, and Speaker Paul Ryan’s office has lately been hyping him up as “the ultimate closer.”...

    The FBI director just confirmed it’s investigating the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia

    FBI Director James Comey has just dropped a bombshell — confirming for the first time that the FBI is investigating links between Trump allies and Russia. “[The FBI is] investigating the nature of any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government and whether there was any coordination between the campaign...

    500 million Yahoo accounts were hacked. The US just blamed it on 2 Russian spies.

    500 million Yahoo accounts were hacked. The US just blamed it on 2 Russian spies.

    The timing is pretty awful for Trump. The United States rarely blames foreign governments for hacks targeting US corporations. Yet in a Wednesday presser, the Department of Justice did just that — announcing indictments against two agents of the Russian FSB spy agency, Dmitry Dokuchaev and Igor Sushchin, for a 2014 breach of Yahoo that got access...

    A director on his new film about Syria: “We want people to look this tragedy in the face”

    “If we want the refugee problem to go away, we have to end this war.” —Evgeny Afineevsky A few weeks ago, I saw a screening of a new documentary film called Cries From Syria. It was a punishing watch. The film is raw, emotional, and relentlessly honest about the costs of war. The director, Evgeny Afineevsky, an American citizen who was born in...

    Jon Huntsman, Trump’s pick for Russia ambassador, is a baffling choice

    Former Utah governor Jon Huntsman Jr. has been tapped to be President Trump’s ambassador to Russia. And that is very, very strange. Huntsman isn’t a Russia expert, or anything close. President Obama appointed Huntsman, a Republican, to serve as ambassador to China in his first term because Huntsman speaks Mandarin and had lived in...
