Sean's Russia Blog Podcast - Live Recording With University of Warwick Fellow

Sean Guillory, Digital Scholarships Coordinator for the Center for Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies, hosts Sean's Russia Blog, a podcast dedicated to Eurasian history, politics, and society.

On March 7, Sean will conduct a live interview with Natalia Telepneva of the University of Warwick.

The Soviet Union and its Warsaw Pact satellites were ideologically, materially, and geopolitically committed to aiding national liberation struggles in Africa during the Cold War. Communist states gave economic aid, provided weapons, and sent spies and military advisors. This live interview with Natalia Telepneva will explore the relationship between Soviet and Warsaw Pact policy and activities in African anti-colonial struggles, the role of espionage in the Cold War and the influence of Soviet and Warsaw Pact secret services on the development of state security in post-independent Africa.
