On the matter of the war in Ukraine, one of my favorite historians, Stephen Kotkin, is my go-to person. Here’s Peter Robinson of the Hoover Institution in conversation with Kotkin.
This is from March 4th, when the Russian invasion was just eight days old. Kotkins places it in its historical context. Although 80 minutes long, it is worth every minute and more.
The previous post (Ukraine) had a link to a piece which argued that the US should keep out of the conflict. Nothing that Kotkin says contradicts that position.
