Twenty-two respected geopolitical analysts counter the fraudulent Western narrative on Ukraine.  Viewed from the perspective of Western mainstream media, the crisis arose due to pro-democracy activists overturning a brutal dictatorship, which led swiftly to Russian incursion into Ukraine and annexation of Crimea.  Viewed from the perspective of the 22 highly-credentialed analysts who have contributed to this anthology, it’s an entirely different story.  Obama’s pivot is global, in pursuit of unchallenged worldwide dominance, leading to multiple direct and proxy wars.

“The book’s contributions illuminate not only the background of the Ukraine conflict, but also the expansionist goals of the US-NATO alliance.  Flashpoint in Ukraine can therefore be highly recommended.” Dr. LUDWIG WATZAL, Between the Lines
