Shadow State: Murder, Mayhem and Russia’s Remaking of the West
Venue: Church of Ireland
When Luke Harding accepted our invitation to return to Hinterland he was based in Ukraine. He has continued to report from that beleaguered and isolated country in the interim and has got a close up view of how Mr. Putin wages war. His two most recent works are Collusion: Secret Meetings, Dirty Money, and How Russia Helped Donald Trump Win (2017) and Shadow State: Murder, Mayhem and Russia’s Remaking of the West (2020). So, for most of 2022 Luke has been describing the outcome of the facilitation of the Putin regime that he highlighted in both those books. Luke will be in conversation with Myles Dungan.
