Scott was joined by Gilbert Doctorow on Antiwar Radio Sunday to talk about Russia and Ukraine. The recent Russian build-up of forces on its border with Ukraine’s Donbas Region has been highly publicized in American media, but the greater context has been all but eliminated from the public discourse. Doctorow provides that context in this interview. He explains how Russian actions are better understood as reactions to American weapons flowing into Ukraine, something the Kremlin considers to be a de facto NATO expansion. Doctorow also explains the dangerous next steps we can expect if this escalation is allowed to continue.
Discussed on the show:
- Nyet Means Nyet Cable (Wikileaks)
- “Rules of war need rewriting for the age of AI weapons” (Financial Times)
- “Remember Pearl Harbor, Mr. President?” (The American Conservative)
Gilbert Doctorow is an independent political analyst and was the European Coordinator of The American Committee for East-West Accord. He writes regularly for Consortium News. His latest book is Does the United States Have a Future?
