Interview on BreakThrough News

I was honored to be interviewed by Brian Becker on “The Socialist Program” for BreakThrough News. We discuss the deep history of Nazism in Ukraine, as well as its contemporary manifestations and root causes.

Article in Liberation News: “Nazis in Ukraine”

My latest article in Liberation News, “Nazis in Ukraine: Seeing through the Fog of the Information War,” examines the history and contemporary presence of Nazism in Ukraine.

Not only was the security detail intentionally minimized to the extreme, but decisions were made at the highest levels of the chain of command to allow a right-wing mob to rampage through the building. At the forefront of this antidemocratic horde, as we shall see, there were fascist or semi-fascist organizations whose leadership has multiple direct ties to the military and intelligence agencies. All of this raises fundamental questions regarding the true nature of the U.S. government and its relationship to fascism. [read more]”

Interviewed with Claudia de la Cruz on “Fascism in the USA and Strategies to Fight It”

It was a pleasure to be interviewed, along with Claudia de la Cruz, on one of my favorite news and information platforms: The Socialist Program.
