MURFREESBORO — Prospects for improved relations between the United States and Russia will be the topic on the next “MTSU On the Record” radio program.
Host Gina Logue’s interview with Andrei Korobkov will air from 5:30 to 6 p.m. Monday, July 27, and from 8 to 8:30 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 2, on WMOT-FM (89.5 and www.wmot.org).
In an interview published June 5 in Russia Direct magazine, Korobkov, a professor of political science, said, “As a pragmatist, (President) Obama is much more beneficial for Russia than any other presidential candidate of the current campaign. So, after the 2016 presidential campaign, changes are highly likely to be negative of any new change in thinking about Russia.”
“But the irony is that right now there is a very widespread irritation with American policies among various groups of the Russian population,” said Korobkov in the radio interview.
Korobkov also sized up the current crop of Democratic and Republican candidates as to their likelihood to establish good relations with Russia should they be elected president.
