The still decidedly volatile situation in Ukraine – resulting from another in that long line of US inspired regime changes that have done so much to destabilize the geopolitical landscape over the past few decades – is worth revisiting for a number of reasons.

This is especially given his incisive body of reportage on the crisis since 2014; the larger issue of America’s worsening relationship with Russia; and the geopolitical implications going forward of these developments. Australian writer/blogger Greg Maybury reports.
