We talk to Valerie Sperling, a Clark professor of political science, about the war in Ukraine. Sperling explains why she doesn't think launching an attack on Ukraine was in the best interest of Russian President Vladimir Putin and discusses potential risks of nuclear attacks.

Sperling has been studying Russia since she was in college in the 1980s and is teaching a course on Russian politics this semester. Learn more about political science at Clark.
