This week on High Noon with Inez Stepman, Inez is joined by Boris Ryvkin, former national security advisor to Senator Ted Cruz and an indispensable voice of explanation on the Russian invasion of Ukraine that is putting the world into crisis. Combining Russian, Ukrainian, and English sources with his own prodigious knowledge of history and foreign relations, Boris talks listeners through the intertwined historical roots of Russia and Ukraine, the likely differences in thinking and national character between Russians and the West, and what is likely to come next for Ukrainians resisting invasion. Stepman and Ryvkin also discuss the future of the U.S.-led global order in an era when America’s institutions seem ideologically captured and its elite foreign policy class incompetent.


If you’re feeling a bit lost in the wildly swirling reports from the front lines, this episode of High Noon with Boris Ryvkin is a must.
