A Russia Debate took place at the Oxford Union on Thursday. One side of the dispute argued that “the West treats Russia unfairly,” and the other claimed that the animosity towards Russia and the sanctions against it are a result of its conduct.
Following the event, RT met with speakers from both parties – the proposition represented by Sir Tony Brenton, British Ambassador to Russia from 2004–2008, and the opposition led by John Andrews, senior editor for Project Syndicate and one of the leadings editors for The Economist.
RT: John, during the debate you mentioned media perception of Russia. How balanced do you feel that is in the mainstream Western media, not perhaps so much towards Putin, but towards the crisis in relations with Russia right now?
