After taking a week off, Stephen F. Cohen joined John Batchelor again last evening for a full update and discussion of the current events in Ukraine. As you wait for the Fedlines at 2:00 p.m. EDT, listening to this is a very productive use of your time.
Again, this was recorded just 12 hours ago so it's completely up-to-date. In this podcast, John and Stephen discuss:
- The latest provocations including the pipeline explosion and death of Russian journalists
- Recent demonstrations in front of the Russian embassy in Kiev
- Potential timelines for "ending" the crisis peacefully
- The internal pressures on Putin to "do something"
This is well worth the 40-minute investment of your time. When you're done listening, be sure to visit SilverSooner's excellent forum where he posts daily updates from his contacts within Ukraine: https://www.tfmetalsreport.com/forum/5807/ukrainian-civil-war and be sure to seek out The John Batchelor Program on your local radio dial.
