Do you think Putin will stop with the Donbas and a corridor to Crimea, (including the water supply to Crimea)? Or will he continue taking over Ukraine?

Why is the PSR campaign called "Demand Access"?
Shane Snowdon
Thank you, Jasmine! That’s jowens@psr.org!
Martin Fleck
We Demand [equitable] Access to resources that we desperately need that are currently being shoveled into military spending which mostly lines the pockets of giant military contractors
Martin Fleck
Young health professionals have expressed to PSR that a "hot button" issue for them is that Americans do NOT have equitable access to public health and health care. Hence we "demand access" where it is currently denied.
Daniel Oppenheim
Please address the argument that the fact that both Russia and NATO both have nuclear weapons is an example that "deterrence" works in that we have not amplified our involvement in Ukraine.
