CrossTalk: Talking Ukraine

It is widely agreed that Ukraine is facing harsh realities with few good options for the foreseeable future. However, another tragedy is being played out and that is Western media coverage. Does the mainstream media’s narrative make any sense? CrossTalking with Richard Sakwa, Jeffrey Tayler, and Alexander Mercouris.

The problem with the country of Ukraine is that Russian speaking territories were attached to it during Soviet times - Crimea, and the Eastern sections. The discussion here begins by providing a post Cold War context, explaining that Russia was continually a target of the West, and that in 2008 planning to include Ukraine and Georgia in NATO had been aired.
