Stephen Cohen, contributing editor to The Nation, was interviewed yesterday on the the John Batchelor Show, WABC radio in New York City. They discuss the news of a ceasefire agreement in eastern Ukraine for a cessation of hostilities beginning September 1 and the recent meeting in Berlin on August 24 of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President François Hollande and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.
According to Cohen, by summoning Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to Berlin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President François Hollande made clear that the U.S.-backed government in Kiev, not Moscow, is blocking implementation of their Minsk plan for negotiating an end to the Ukrainian civil war.
By publicly rejecting several premises of U.S. policy, Dr. Henry Kissinger recently breached the political-media orthodoxy that Putin’s Russia alone is responsible for the new cold war.
