Support The Other Side of Midnight!
An unfamiliar name — for an unfamiliar nation to most Americans — suddenly looms large in strident headlines increasingly echoing around the world.
And, a fundamental fear that hasn’t swept across Eastern Europe, let along the United States, in more than 70 years–
An imminent, all-out Land War in Europe!
At the heart of this accelerating global crisis looms one man:
Vladimir Putin — current President of Russia.
What does he really want?
Why has he massed over 130,000 troops, thousands of tanks, an equal number of cannon, rockets and artillery, hundreds of aircraft and tens of ships — to say nothing of mobile field hospitals and stores of human blood for mass casuality transfusions — on the common Russian border of this relatively unknown country called “Ukraine?”
And, why is this head of modern Russia repeatedly sending “preemptive ultimatums” to not only the NATO European alliance … but to the United States … over this relatively unknown piece of eastern European real estate, Ukraine?
Join us tonight … as we take a deep dive — with Russian historian Dr. Richard Spence — into the turgid, murky, centuries-long, heavily-conflicted background of “Russia and Ukraine.”
