The Bear Contained?

As economic hardship and turmoil deepen in Russia, the country looks to restore some of its former greatness by drawing back to it parts of the old Soviet empire. Its new assertiveness presents the West with the huge problem of how to respond. Concluding his two-part investigation, John Lloyd says that the options are narrow and hard and, in the end, the process may not be controllable. Producer Sue Davies
