Sanctions and Global South Cooperation, West Attempts To Pit Africa Against Russia, Media Falls For Azov Whitewashing
In this episode of By Any Means Necessary, hosts Sean Blackmon and Jacquie Luqman are joined by geopolitical analyst and author Pepe Escobar to discuss how the sanctions levied by the US and the EU are pushing Russia to integrate with other sanctioned nations in Eurasia like Iran, how the American mainstream media intentionally ignores happenings in Eurasia and hides the global turn against US hegemony, the growing integration of the global south and the de facto leadership of Russia and China in pursuing an alternative financial economic system, and why the US is changing its tune on the Ukraine war and now seeks a stalemate.
In the second segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire to discuss how Mali and the African continent factor into the conflict in Ukraine and the geopolitical designs of the US and NATO, the passage of the “Countering Malign Russian Activities in Africa Act” by the US House of Representatives and other US attempts to deny African countries their sovereignty, and why the US is keen to stop African nations from taking part in this turn toward a multipolar world order.
In the third segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Garland Nixon, co-host of The Critical hour, which you can hear from 6 to 8 PM EST right here on Radio Sputnik to discuss YouTube’s latest censorship of what it dubs “Russian disinformation” on the conflict in Ukraine and the ongoing censorship of dissenting voices, the Azov Battalion's recent decision to remove Nazi symbols from its uniforms and the mainstream media’s praise of this move despite no change in their ideology.
Later in the show, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Ted Rall, award-winning editorial cartoonist and columnist, and author of the graphic novel, "The Stringer," to discuss the recent shooting in Uvalde, Texas and the imperialist culture of violence that indisputably contributes to the mass shootings that happen in the US, how the concept of civil asset forfeiture not only wreaks havoc on communities that police terrorize but also the nations which dare to stand up to US imperialism, the need for a broad-based movement of working and poor people that draws on important analysis on gender and internationalism, and the continuing US provocations against Taiwan as the US pursues a two-front cold war against Russia and China.
