The Ukraine War has become increasingly dangerous with nuclear threats and the commitments being made for a long war. It has also deepened and accelerated the Russian-Chinese military and economic “partnership” with enormous consequences for the world, not least the increasingly confrontational U.S.-Chinese competition for Asia-Pacific hegemony.
Rajan Menon, John Feffer and Michael Klare will explore these developments, their implications, and how peace and justice advocates can best respond.
