🌹NATO, Nationalism, and Neo-Imperialism - What’s going on in Ukraine?
June 7, 2022
Most people, right, left and center were surprised when Russia invaded Ukraine in early February, but the origins of this conflict go much further back. Tensions have been rising in the border regions between Russia and Ukraine for years, with many centrist political scientists calling out the risks of NATO advancement. Do the roots of this conflict lie in a zealous national reconstruction effort on the part of the Russians or in an ever-encroaching post-Cold War military alliance, or maybe a little bit of both?
