AIR DATE: February 19, 2013

Russia was supposed to be the new democracy that emerged from the Soviet Union. Instead, it's tried to throw it's weight around and seems to be an altogether undemocratic bad boy.

Cory Welt will be speaking to the World Affairs Council of Las Vegas on Friday and we speak to him ahead of the lunch.
