A look at the history of Russian expansion


Every day we see new headlines of the war going on in Ukraine as Russia continues to try and annex the country by force.

Russia has a long history of taking over territory as it has moved eastward, but for many, that’s all it was, history. Until Russia invaded Ukraine this year.

Dr. Megan Dixon joins Idaho Matters to give us a historical perspective on the expansion of Russia and talk a little about what's happening on the ground right now.

As Senior Producer of our live daily talk show Idaho Matters, I’m able to indulge my love of storytelling and share all kinds of information (I was probably a Town Crier in a past life!). My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
