Episode 31: Russian Private Military Contractors in Ukraine with Alec Bertina


    This week I spoke to Alec Bertina, a non-traditional security actor researcher, specializing in Russian security affairs. In this episode, we discussed the wild and confusing network of Russian private military contractors, the people behind them and their mission. From ex-special forces to the far right to oil and gas companies, there are many actors at play here. Alec does a fantastic job of breaking down the key groups and their motivations.
