Putin: Tsar or Commissar? A Conversation with Dr. Fiona Hill

The Burn Bag Podcast

In this special conversation with Fiona Hill, Brookings Institution Senior Fellow and former senior director for European and Russian affairs on the National Security Council from 2017 to 2019, we dive into Russia and its modern day leader Vladimir Putin. Fiona, who served as deputy assistant  to President Trump and was present at the notorious Helsinki Summit between Presidents Trump and Putin provides her reaction to President Biden's meeting with President Putin in Geneva, and her observations on Putin's relationships with past U.S. Presidents. The conversation then digs deep into Fiona's views on Vladimir Putin and his leadership style, drawing comparisons and contrasts between Putin and the Tsars of Russia and the leaders of the Soviet Union. Fiona, who was a co-author of the seminal Putin biography Mr. Putin, does suggest that there are certainly weaknesses in Putin's armor, and details why Putin may have reason to fear opposition figures like Alexei Navalny. We also dig into Russia's foreign policy -- especially regarding its position given its prominent neighbor to the south, China.

Interview with Dr Fiona Hill - University of St Andrews 2020 Rector Candidate

Eco-Activist Journeys

This interview with Dr Fiona Hill is part of a series interviewing all Rector candidates on the topic of climate justice and sustainability in St Andrews. In this episode I speak to Dr Fiona Hill on the topic of climate justice, activism, politics, and sustainability in St Andrews. Fiona Hill originally came to St Andrews from a working-class family in Durham. Once she graduated from St Andrews, she went on to study both a Masters and PhD at Harvard University. In the United States, she has advised three Presidents, and is a world-renowned voice on foreign affairs, specifically on Russia. Furthermore, she was a witness at the 2019 Trump Impechment Trial. Despite all her achievements, Fiona has never forgotten St Andrews, from serving as head of the St Andrews American foundation, where she worked to increase and diversify the numbers of American students coming to St Andrews, to administering the University's honorary graduation address in 2019. As a rectoral candidate, Fiona wants to increase accessibility across St Andrews from facilitating communication between the administration and students, increasing interaction with alumni networks, and bolstering and advertising the Rector's Fund. Many thanks to Fiona for taking time to do the interview with me. If you are a student at the University of St Andrews, please take time to listen to all three interviews and make sure vote in the Rector Elections on Thursday the 15th and Friday the 16th of October 2020.
