International relations scholar Charles Miller joins Democracy Sausage to discuss the conflict in Ukraine and Putin’s ‘re-election’.

Are Ukraine’s international supporters in the United States and Europe losing hope in holding off Russia’s advances and achieving peace? 

If Trump is elected, where will Ukraine source much needed aid? 

And, after Putin has been re-elected for another six years, why do autocrats bother with elections at all? 

On this episode of Democracy Sausage, Dr Charles Miller from the ANU School of Politics and International Relations joins Professor Mark Kenny to discuss the dangerous new era in the conflict in Ukraine. 

Charles Miller is a Lecturer at the ANU School of Politics and International Relations with a focus on military conflict. 

Mark Kenny is a Professor at the ANU Australian Studies Institute. He came to the University after a high-profile journalistic career including six years as chief political correspondent and national affairs editor for The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age and The Canberra Times
