As American interest in Russia peaks, we should ask ourselves: Who are the Russian people? In this teach-in, let’s explore the lives of the wealthy, the ignored, and the persecuted in Russian society. We’ll look at the realities of their lives, the human rights challenges they face (or perpetuate), and what they want from their own government. By understanding Russian society, we can better understand the actions of Russia’s leaders, while also humanizing a people whose nation is often presented as our political adversary.
