The more tensions rise in Ukraine, and the situation is exaggerated by increasingly deranged media narratives, the more difficult it becomes to make sense of the entire crisis unfolding before our eyes.
Nonetheless, many people are attempting to comprehend the situation and, at the very least, look beyond the superficial explanations of one side being bad and the other being good that the mainstream media provides. We’re here to assist with this, and for anyone interested in gaining a more nuanced perspective, which would include, in addition to the widespread criticism, the Russian understanding of the events and processes that have occurred since 2014.
So, if you want to go beyond the usual Russia-bashing and get a better understanding of why we appear to be on the verge of war in Eastern Europe, you’ve come to the right place! This time, the hosts of “On the Barricades” have invited a very special guest who will provide you with a competent and detailed dissection of the current situation as well as the processes that led up to today’s impasse.
Mark Sleboda is an international security analyst as well as a university researcher and lecturer and he’s our guest on this edition of the show.
