In this episode of The Source, we talk with author, history professor, and director of the Nuclear Studies Institute at American University, Peter Kuznick, about the latest developments surrounding the war in Ukraine and the broader geopolitical context. We also examine Ukraine’s counteroffensive and whether the deployment of Taurus cruise missiles to Ukraine, which the German government is currently considering, will give it an advantage on the battlefield. Lastly we look at the significance of a senior NATO official’s statement that Ukraine might have to cede territory in return for NATO membership as a possible peace scenario.
