World War 3: Cold War 2 tensions now worse than first Cold War amid Russia-Ukraine proxy war


On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Professor Richard Sakwa, author of ‘Frontline Ukraine: Crisis in the Borderlands’ and professor of Russian and European politics at the University of Kent. He discusses why tensions between Russia and NATO are far worse than the tensions of the first Cold War, the ICC indictment against Russian President Vladimir Putin and why he believes the indictment was entirely political amid the privatization of the UN system by the US, why Russia still has the advantage in the proxy war in Ukraine, the echo chamber in Western media where zero criticism of NATO policy is allowed, the 1990s origins of the current soaring tensions between Moscow and Washington, and much more.
