In this podcast, I discuss the war in Ukraine with Konstantin Kisin. (He is a comedian, co-host of Triggernometry, and author of An Immigrant's Love Letter to the West. He also happens to be from Russia. You can find him on both Twitter and Substack.) Our discussion centres on the question, ‘Arming Ukraine and sanctioning Russia – is this the right approach?’ Konstantin takes the position that, broadly speaking, it is the right approach. I take the contrary position, arguing that this approach may have serious unintended consequences, and that the West ought to try a different strategy.
