  • Aired: 02/21/2014

  • Rating: NR
To outsiders, Russia carries a nearly mythic reputation. Gregory Feifer, whose mother grew up during communism and himself lived there as a news correspondent, teases out an understanding of Russian character through observations of daily life in his new book, “Russians: The People Behind the Power.” Feifer joins Jeffrey Brown to discuss how Russian behavior is reflected in the Sochi Olympics.
