On Ukraine, Russia, Nato expansion and sanctions

Ukraine’s government has accused Russia of war crimes for deliberately targeting civilians during its invasion of Ukraine and is reporting troops from Belarus have joined Russia’s invasion.

Despite resistance in Ukraine to the Russian military, Yale historian Prof Timothy Synder says Russia will soon enter “a much more horrifying stage of this war”.

Democracy Now! also speaks with veteran journalist Andrew Cockburn, Washington editor for Harper’s magazine, who says international sanctions imposed on Russia are having repercussions in Western countries, which have industries dependent on Russian supplies. “We’ve sanctioned ourselves, as well,” says Cockburn, author of The Spoils of War: Power, Profit and the American War Machine.
