  • Russia is a big, complex, multifaceted nation that can't be distilled down to a single headline, meme, or politician. This is The Russia Desk, a NowThis World mini-series where we'll be diving into the real Russia with a new video each week.

    ‘The Russia Desk’ is a series about everything Russia: from Vladimir Putin’s government to the Russian people and culture, to its history with the United States. If you’re curious about Trump, Putin, Crimea, Syria, borscht, dashcams, sanctions, or more, this is the place for you. There’s a lot of misinformation out there about Russia, its government, and its sphere of influence — including U.S. elections. ‘The Russia Desk’ aims to separate fact from fiction with expert interviews, original analysis, and on-the-ground reporting. Pee tape not guaranteed.

    NowThis World is dedicated to bringing you topical explainers about the world around you. Each week we’ll be exploring current stories in international news, by examining the facts, providing historical context, and outlining the key players involved. We’ll also highlight powerful countries, ideologies, influential leaders, and ongoing global conflicts that are shaping the current landscape of the international community across the globe today.

    Hi everyone! Really glad to see that many of you are excited about this series. We're excited to dive in. I'm definitely taking your feedback regarding topics we should cover. We wanted to do a whole series about Russia because of how much they're dominating media and certain geopolitics right now, but we'll definitely be watching India and China closely as well. And we'll do an episode about the politics between all those countries. Thanks for tuning in! Keep the comments coming!

    The beginning of this video was even pleased. I want to add that it’s not cold everywhere, and in the summer in the south it is even hotter than in many states of the USA. (+ 35 ° С to + 45 ° С)
    And in many areas of the country in winter it is not lower than -15 ° С. The total temperature range is from -60 ° C to + 45 ° C.
    And secondly, not everyone supports Putin. Most of the population does not like him, and many even hate him. He and many officials plundered the country.

    Russia Desk will probably be taken down and here's why...Putin spent millions trying to get the Magnitsky Act repelled. Just a fraction of what he spent to get the Magnitsky Act repelled is enough to close down this channel😁
