Is conflict between the US & its allies v Russia & China inevitable? (Ex-UK ambassador to Russia) E1006

On this episode of Going Underground, we first speak to Sir Tony Brenton, the former UK ambassador to Russia. He discusses Boris Johnson’s decision to send UK warships to the Black Sea, Russia’s recent military build-up near the Ukrainian border for military exercises which have since concluded, Alexey Navalny’s imprisonment in Russia and his history of racist comments in the past, whether conflict between the US, NATO and its allies v Russia and China can be avoided, and much more! Finally, we speak to Farah Nabulsi, director of the Oscar-nominated film ‘The Present’, which focusses on a Palestinian family’s struggle living near an IDF checkpoint. She discusses how checkpoints are just a small part of the wider occupation and apartheid apparatus that Palestinians are living under, her belief that the film industry is opening up to films focussing on racism and discrimination unapologetically, how the checkpoints don’t serve the security interests of Palestinians, her hopes that the next generation of Palestinians will be much more defiant in their struggle against occupation, and much more!
