PETER CONRADI
Russia: A New Cold War
When the Soviet Union collapsed on
26 December 1991, it looked like the start
of a remarkable new time of peace and
co-operation. Peter Conradi argues that
we have consistently failed to understand
Russia and its motives. In doing so, we have
made a powerful enemy. Peter witnessed
the USSR’s collapse first-hand as foreign
correspondent in
Moscow.
Peter Conradi is
foreign editor of
The
Sunday Times
. He
co-authored
The King’s
Speech
, which inspired
the Oscar-winning film.
