Episode 32: Ukrainian Identity and Russian Imperialism with Graeme Robertson
On this episode I'm joined by Graeme Robertson, co-author of Putin vs. the People, to discuss Putin's invasion of Ukraine, the formation of the new Ukrainian national identity, and the way that nationalism, imperialism, and neoliberalism have shaped the current situation. Graeme debunks right-wing talking points about the war, provides necessary context from recent Ukrainian and Russian history, and reminds us all what's at stake in this war. For more from Graeme, check out his article in the Washington Post.
