In the first part of this interview series, we have a contextual conversation with The Nation’s editorial director and publisher Katrina vanden Heuvel about the war in Ukraine. We explore the question of whether Russia’s war in Ukraine was at all legitimate, and examine why Russia failed to integrate politically with the West. We also talk about NATO’s role and the state of U.S. politics with regard to Ukraine. The second part of this interview, which deals with the latest developments in the war in Ukraine, will be published in the coming days.
Katrina vanden Heuvel is editorial director and publisher of The Nation. She is also a columnist for The Washington Post. Vanden Heuvel is also the author of several books, including The Change I Believe In: Fighting for Progress in The Age of Obama, and co-author (with Stephen F. Cohen) of Voices of Glasnost: Interviews with Gorbachev’s Reformers. Vanden Heuvel serves on the boards of the Progressive Caucus Center, the Institute for Policy Studies, the Type Media Center, the Sidney Hillman Media Foundation, the American Committee for US-Russian Accord, Inequality Media, Brave New Films, and many other organizations.
