Exposing Putin’s Propaganda
Concerning the global stakes, Zubrin writes in National Review, “Without Ukraine, Dugin’s fascist Eurasian Union project is impossible, and sooner or later Russia itself will have to join the West and become free, leaving only a few despised and doomed islands of tyranny around the globe.
