5/31/19 Gilbert Doctorow on the ‘Euroskeptics’ Promoting Peace with Russia
Gilbert Doctorow explains the shifting landscape of European parliamentary politics, including the dangerous trend toward antagonism against Russia. The main problem for many years, says Doctorow, was that a single centrist coalition controlled almost everything, and they were largely hawks. Recent elections, however, have begun to shift political energy toward populism and “euroskepticism”, which may be a good thing for peace.
