The US and UK are ramping up threats to Russia over Ukraine by sending more weapons, vowing more sanctions, and lodging evidence-free claims of a Russian plot to install a pro-Kremlin leader. But comments by Germany’s navy chief that Russia “deserves respect” — leading to his resignation — underscore that not everyone is on board with Washington and London’s war fever. Scholar and author Richard Sakwa discusses the latest in the Ukraine crisis.
Guest: Richard Sakwa. Professor of Russian and European politics at the University of Kent. His books include “Frontline Ukraine: Crisis in the Borderlands” and his latest, “Deception: Russiagate and the New Cold War.”
