We are also offering for our patrons more exclusive content and an interactive component where you can submit questions for our interviews. So stay tuned here at CovertAction Magazine and to the CovertAction Bulletin at our patreon page for announcements.—Editors]
Last Week’s Episode—Ukraine Crisis Fueled by U.S. and NATO Expansion
The outbreak of war between Russia and Ukraine did not come out of nowhere. Fundamental to understanding the current crisis is the history of U.S. and NATO expansion in Europe—which the U.S. repeatedly promised Russia would not happen.
Richard Becker of the ANSWER Coalition discusses the events in Ukraine and Russia from 2014 leading up to the current crisis and addresses the question, what should the U.S. anti-war movement demand?
Also, Jeremy Kuzmarov, the Managing Editor of CovertAction Magazine, discusses his recent article entitled, “As U.S. Threatens War with Russia, Biden Administration Unveils Imperial Strategy for Indo-Pacific That Could Lead to War with China.”
Jeremy provides an in-depth analysis of U.S. and NATO expansion into Ukraine and the geopolitics of Russia-China relations, a context that sheds light on the roots of the crisis.
Listen to the episode on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Amazon Music and other podcast platforms. For the full episode, visit the CovertAction Bulletin at our patreon site: https://www.patreon.com/CovertActionMagazine and select a membership level.
This Week’s Episode—War Fever and Russophobia Spreading Across U.S.
The offices of RT America were suddenly and abruptly shut down amid war fever and Russophobia spreading across the country.
Lee Camp, the former host of RT’s Redacted Tonight joins us to share his experience of censorship. In addition to the shut down of Reacted Tonight, Lee’s independent podcast, “Moment of Clarity” has been removed from Spotify. Social media platforms have begun the witch hunt of discrediting and silencing anti-war journalists.
