Stephen Cohen: The American Press Is Wrong About Ukraine

On the John Batchelor Show, Russian studies professor and Nation contributor Stephen Cohen criticizes the American media’s coverage of ongoing protests in Ukraine. Expanding on a letter he wrote to The New York Times, published on this site, Cohen disputes the narrative that Vladimir Putin bullied President Viktor Yanukovych into rejecting a EU-deal. Hear why EU-integration might not be such a great idea for Ukraine in the first place and how the American press has failed to report “the true story” of what’s really going on in Kiev.
