Russia's Invasion of Ukraine: Historical background with Adam Patterson
Show Notes

Adam returns to the show to discuss the historical context for Russia's invasion of Ukraine. We discuss Ukraine and Russia's relationship within the Soviet Union, the shock privatization of the post-Soviet Russian economy, Yeltsin's 1993 attack on the Russian parliament, NATO expansion, Putinism as a product of hyper-capitalism and far-right nationalism, and how to take a principled anti-imperialist position in the face of Russia's ruthless invasion of Ukraine.
