In this final episode of the Brookings Cafeteria podcast, John R. Allen, president of the Brookings Institution, offers his views on Russia’s war on Ukraine—including the February 4 joint statement between Russia and China; on China’s continued ambitions for global leadership; and on the role of the Brookings Institution at a time when, as Allen says, “truth is under direct assault.”
