5/31/19 Gilbert Doctorow on the ‘Euroskeptics’ Promoting Peace with Russia

Gilbert Doctorow explains the shifting landscape of European parliamentary politics, including the dangerous trend toward antagonism against Russia. The main problem for many years, says Doctorow, was that a single centrist coalition controlled almost everything, and they were largely hawks. Recent elections, however, have begun to shift political energy toward populism and “euroskepticism”, which may be a good thing for peace.

Discussed on the show:

Gilbert Doctorow is an independent political analyst and was the European Coordinator of The American Committee for East-West Accord. He writes regularly for Consortium News. His latest book is Does the United States Have a Future?
