On October 10, 2014, Stephen Cohen, the eminent scholar of Russian Studies from Princeton, gave an extensive interview to Sophie Shevardnadze on RT. (Formerly called Russia Today, this is the Russian cable and satellite TV channel that is aimed at an international audience). This program begins with clips from that interview. Stephen Cohen says we are in a new Cold War with the added danger of a nuclear confrontation. Cohen gives an erudite critique of the current sanctions and the US led NATO expansion Eastward that has destabilized Europe.

In the second part of this program we return to Helen Caldicott's appearance at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, that was covered in Part ONE of this program. Following her talk on The Ukraine Crisis, Is Nuclear Conflict Likely? she answered questions from the Press. As you will hear in this segment some of the problems with media coverage and the reasons for the news black-out on this topic are due to the lack of information or bias even among journalists.

While living in the US, Helen Caldicott brought Physicians for Social Responsibility out of a long dormancy. The umbrella organization, International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War, won the 1985 Nobel Peace Prize. Her most recent book is Crisis Without End an anthology about the current and future danger of Fukushima.
Many thanks to the National Press Club Newsmakers in Washington for allowing me to use the audio of this luncheon and to RT Washington for the clips from their interview of Russia expert Stephen Cohen. Cohen teaches at New York University and is the author of many books and essays, including the 2011 "Soviet Fates and Lost Alternatives. From Stalinism to the New Cold War."
