Stand Up or Sit Down

In The American Interest, AHS speaker Jakub Grygiel discusses Putin's perspective of the West, and why the West needs to prove him wrong:

"Whether Russia’s assessment of the West is correct or precise is irrelevant. Perception is reality and Russia’s perspective drives its march westward. Regardless of the specific Western response ranging from sanctions to repositioning of military assets, it is in everybody’s interest to alter Russia’s assessment of our weakness, decadence, and division."
