Medea Benjamin will be speaking on her new book, "War in Ukraine: Making Sense of a Senseless Conflict," co-written with Nicolas J.S. Davies.
Russia’s brutal February 2022 invasion of Ukraine has attracted widespread condemnation across the West. Government and media circles present the conflict as a simple dichotomy between an evil empire and an innocent victim. In this concise, accessible and highly informative primer, Medea Benjamin and Nicolas Davies insist the picture is more complicated.
