How Ukraine’s far-right, with NATO backing, block peace

Scholar Nicolai Petro discusses the overlooked influence of Ukraine’s far-right nationalist movement and former German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s recent admission that the Minsk Accords — the international formula for ending the post-2014 Donbas civil war — “was an attempt to give Ukraine time” to prepare for a conflict with Russia, rather than make peace. Petro is the author of the new book, “The Tragedy of Ukraine.” Guest: Nicolai Petro. Professor of political science at the University of Rhode Island, and author of the new book: “The Tragedy of Ukraine: What Classical Greek Tragedy Can Teach Us About Conflict Resolution.”
