In todays video, I conducted an interview with Matthew Hoh, about the Russia-Ukraine war and the US/UK/NATO side of it. Along with his unique perspective of personally being in the Iraq and Afghan wars, he also backs up that experience with great knowledge of the subject area. The interview is packed with great information about the war, events leading up to it, the Western reaction and Russia & China.
Please feel free to comment if I have missed any links in the show notes.
