As the Ukraine crisis escalates, correspondent Dan Cohen is joined by former United Nations Weapons Inspector Scott Ritter. They contextualize the history of NATO deceptions, provocations, and the 7-year war on Donbas that led up to Russia’s invasion to “de-Nazify” Ukraine. Ritter compares the military capabilities of the US, NATO, and Russia, and explains how the US has armed neo-Nazi militias.
