Former ambassador Michael McFaul on Putin's Russia

Michael McFaul was U.S. Ambassador to Russia from 2012 to 2014. Before that, he served on Obama’s National Security Council, where he crafted the so-called “reset” between the two countries. Now out with a new memoir, McFaul talks to us about being the target of disinformation, Putin’s popularity and view of the U.S., and the danger of living in Russia.
