Peter Roberts talks to Natia Seskuria, Founder and Executive Director of the Regional Institute for Security Studies (RISS), a Tbilisi-based think tank, about the Russian Invasion and occupation of Georgia. There are few better ways of understanding the Russian Military mindset, then talking to those who have faced the Russian Military in the past.
Georgia faced the full force of the Russian military. Peter and Natia talk about the political situation in Georgia now, the changes that Georgia has been through and what its like living with the existential threat of living next door to Putin’s Russia.
The war in 2008 may have only lasted 5 Days, but the effects have not ended for Georgia, and it continually faces Russian ‘Active Measures’.
