In this episode of The Source, we talk with history professor and author Peter Kuznick about Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decision to order the deployment of troops to two breakaway regions of Ukraine – Donetsk and Luhansk – and recognize them as independent. We also talk about the role NATO played in triggering this decision by President Putin – an aspect that is rarely highlighted in the coverage of most mainstream media.
