Tuesday, October 4 Capitol Calling Party: Book Talk on the War in Ukraine

On Tuesday, October 4, join CODEPINK and Massachusetts Peace Action as we interview CODEPINK Co-founder Medea Benjamin and her co-author Nicolas J.S. Davies about their new book, War in Ukraine: Making Sense of a Senseless Conflict. Kicking off a book tour throughout the United States, Medea and Nicolas will share their insights on events that led up to Russia’s brutal invasion, the risks of escalation, and opportunities for peace. Learn about the 2014 coup that set the stage for the current crisis, the success and failure of the 2015 MINSK II Peace Accord, the dangerous role of the neo-Nazi Azov Batallion and opportunities to avert a protracted war or worse–a nuclear war.
