About this deal

I thought that the case that you made was very clear and obvious, especially stuff about how we have nuclear-capable weapons systems within range of Moscow. Abelow agreed to chat briefly with Real Change, touching on how he avoided the touchier sides of the subject, how the American public has been misled about the war and why it’s important that the conflict comes to a conclusion as quickly and safely as possible. Russia became surrounded by NATO states ,and Ukraine was the "straw " that broke the camal's back bone ! Benjamin Abelow’s clear, concise account of the United States and NATO’s largely unreported role in escalating tensions between Russia and Ukraine is an outlier in our discourse about the current conflict.

Gap-bridging Turkey has also emerged as a major new diplomatic player – helping broker the grain blockade deal, acting as a humanitarian base for hostage swaps, and hosting (to date, failed) peace talks while simultaneously blocking Finland’s, and particularly Sweden’s, NATO accession for its own security reasons.Zelenskyy was an outsider in Ukrainian politics, emerging from the creative economy rather than the oligarchical class, giving him credibility and popularity, she adds. President Vladimir Putin’s decision to launch a full-scale re-invasion of Ukraine one year ago was a global shock which ‘marked an abrupt end to 30 years of globalization and all the international co-operation that made that possible’ with serious implications for countries around the world, outlined Chatham House director Bronwen Maddox in her inaugural lecture. In contrast to the days of the cold war, today one’s major trade partners are not usually one’s security partners. Who’s benefiting and who would benefit from all this propaganda, making it look like they weren’t involved in [the provocation]?

This book provides a great reference for what actually happened in the past, undoubtedly resulting in PROVOKING a war. However, a strikingly high proportion of respondents in the US, Great Britain, and the EU – between 40 and 50 per cent – say they simply do not know how to define Turkiye.The survey reveals that Vladimir Putin’s war of outright aggression, and his military failures during the conflict, do not appear to have caused people in non-Western countries to downgrade their opinion of Russia or to question its relative strength.

However, this book defended Russia without explaining to the reader why so many countries fear Russia. Russia’s brutal assault on Ukraine has taken a heavy toll on its citizens but has also united the country in a way not seen before. Warnings have also emerged from the West, with US president Joe Biden declaring the risk of a nuclear armageddon to be at its highest level for 60 years, bringing the nuclear issue firmly back to the forefront of discussion. He is able to pull off a rather neat trick: criticizing the West’s role in inciting the war without straying into pro-Russian apologia.Their main responses when asked to describe their country are that it is “rising” (35 per cent), “strong” (28 per cent), and “peaceful” (18 per cent). How ever much we disagree with Russia’s undoubted authoritarianism, nationalism and intolerance it is vital to understand Russia’s perspective rather than lazily resorting to relentless demonisation.

The UK has been keen to stress its ‘special relationship’ with Kyiv with a desire especially by former prime minister Boris Johnson to lead the pack with strong rhetoric and military support. And even if it’s not a deliberate attempt, like to fire bomb the German cities, or to fire bomb the Japanese cities, to say nothing of the atomic bomb, there’s a lot of innocent casualties involved. The author did a great job uncovering details and facts about the Ukraine war that have been buried. In the United Kingdom, the poll did not cover Northern Ireland, which is why the paper refers to Great Britain.I consider that there are 2 aspects which can explain some countries’ position in this conflict, which needed to be included in this analysis : on one hand the old and not that old examples of West aggression in the world which are compromising its credibility as beacons of peace and democracy, and, on the other hand, the unimaginable suffering induced by Soviet Union on the countries which entered under its influence after the WWII.
