Season 3, Episode 1 of 52

The latest peace talks in the Russia-Ukraine war may lead to an eventual ceasefire but not before displacing millions and damaging the air, water and land of what was known as the bread basket for the world. This week, we've assembled a roundtable of human rights advocates from Ukraine, Russia & the United States to discuss the ongoing conflict and who highlight models of local resistance and support. Our guests have been working for democracy in Ukraine, Russia, and the US for years and partnering with efforts across the world. What do Ukrainian and Russian comrades see as possible pathways to peace and justice, and what does global solidarity look like? What happens next will have long lasting impacts on all of us. "The Ukrainian war is a global war. It's not just a territorial conflict, and I think we all have to understand that." -Anastasiya Leukhina. "We still need citizen mobilization. We still need transnational connections . . . there is hope in us realizing that failure, looking at the roots of it and building on the great things that are happening, despite all the horror that's going on." -Dmitri Makarov. "There won't be civil society present at the table until we have a civil society that is more of a presence in demanding it. That diplomacy must be real, not just a slogan. We need real mobilization. " -Phyllis Bennis. Guests: Phyllis Bennis, Director, New Internationalism Project-Institute for Policy Studies; Anastasiya Leukhina, Lecturer, Kyiv School of Economics; Dmitri Makarov, Human Rights Defender, Council Member Moscow Helsinki Group.
