Ukraine ‘invasion’ and world in chaos (E422)

The Russians say they won’t invade Ukraine and Ukraine’s president tends to agree. But it’s still the prevailing narrative, at least in Britain and America, where there seems to be a cacophony of threats and calls for war coming from London and Washington. Peter Lavelle is an American and a conservative, he also hosts RT’s legendary Crosstalk, so we invited him aboard Sputnik to find out why this is happening.

So what is the answer to the chaos around the world? Why isn’t there a single standard for human rights, self-determination, foreign incursions, interference in the internal affairs of others? What’s the point of the United Nations if it cannot keep peace and find conflict resolution? Professor Alfred de Zayas is a lawyer and historian, who was the UN special rapporteur on the promotion of a democratic and equitable international order. He’s the author of nine books, the latest titled ‘Building a Just World Order’, so who could be better qualified to help find some answers?
