The John Batchelor Show, July 14.

Nation contributing editor Stephen F. Cohen and John Batchelor continue their weekly discussion of the new US-Russian Cold War. The discussion focuses on the impact of the conflict over Ukraine on other international developments, including the recent BRICS and Shanghai Cooperation summits in Russia led by Moscow and Beijing, Iran’s possible emergence as a major power, and the crisis in EU-Greek relations. Also discussed is the growing political crisis of the US-backed Ukrainian government, as armed ultra–nationalist forces clash with and threaten to overthrow the Kiev regime.
