Master strategist or opportunistic gambler? Vladimir Putin styles himself as a judo master – an expert in spotting weakness in his opponents and then exploiting it. To figure out what we can learn from his attempts to call time on liberal democracy and Russian meddling in the 2016 US election, Jonny Dymond is joined by:

Henry Foy, European diplomatic correspondent for the Financial Times and a former Moscow bureau chief
Nina Khrushcheva, professor of international affairs at the New School in New York
Misha Glenny, author of ‘McMafia’ and rector of the Institute for Human Sciences in Vienna
