Turkey and the Russia - Ukraine Crisis: CMEC talks to Dr. Ziya Meral

In the third of a series of podcasts on Turkey, sponsored by Turkish Lawfirm in London, Karkin and Yuksel, CMEC Director talks to Dr. Ziya Meral on the impact of the Russia - Ukraine crisis on Turkey, the MENA Region, and the UK. 

CMEC Director Charlotte Leslie talks Turkey with Dr Ziya Meral, a senior associate fellow at RUSI, as well as being a programmes director specialising in global trends shaping defence and security, politics and foreign policies of Turkey and the Middle East.

Since Russia began its attack on Ukraine in late February, Turkey has assumed an even greater significance, thanks to its geography and complex network of global alliances. Recently, Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened to boycott the NATO applications of Sweden and Finland. So what next for this regional Middle East superpower in these dark times?

This is the 3rd in a series of podcasts on Turkey sponsored by Karkin and Yuksel, a leading Turkish law firm based in the heart of London. To find out more about their practice, visit www.karkinyuksel.co.uk
