This interview is an episode of The Socialist Program with Brian Becker, a podcast providing news and views about the world for those who want to change it, produced as part of BreakThrough News. You can follow the show on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
As the U.S./NATO proxy war in Ukraine against Russia rages, the imperialist establishment is increasingly united behind a strategy of escalation. Brian and Eugene Puryear trace the development of this increasingly hostile approach over the years and decades; and review the most important recent military, economic and political developments in the conflict.
Eugene Puryear is the host of the BreakThrough News podcast The Punch Out, and co-host of the BT live video show The Freedom Side.
