Brian Taylor, professor of political science in the Maxwell School, was interviewed for the Radio Free Europe story “Eyeing Ukraine, Putin Huddles In A Tight Hawkish Circle.” Taylor, an expert on Russian politics, explained that historically it has been difficult to discern exactly who may have influence over Putin’s decisions, especially when it comes to military action. “It’s more the last person that Putin talked to, rather than some kind of collective consensus of the foreign and security policymaking elites,” Taylor said.
