What does the Russian invasion of Ukraine mean for the rest of Europe? Democracy Now! speaks with Yanis Varoufakis, former Greek finance minister, about the failure of international bodies like the EU and the UN in preventing war.
UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres implored Russia to withdraw all troops in a speech immediately following Thursday’s attack, and the US and allies are moving swiftly to impose sanctions as retaliation against the aggression.
Varoufakis warns these threats are “like a pea shooter trying to stop a tank”. The only hope for a peaceful resolution is for Nato to declare Ukraine will not become a member, Varoufakis says.
