Stephen Cohen is a professor of Russian Studies and History at New York University, one of the nation’s foremost experts on Russian-American relations and the author of nine books on Russian history, including his latest, “Soviet Fates and Lost Alternatives: From Stalinism to the New Cold War.” He’s also a contributor to The Nation Magazine, and with his wife, The Nation editor and publisher Katrina vanden Heuvel, recently traveled to Russia to personally interview American dissident Edward Snowden.

Cohen has been a vocal critic of US/NATO policy over the Ukraine crisis, as well as US media’s depiction of Putin as the aggressor and Ukraine the victim. What is the true standing of Russia as an international power? Do you agree with Professor Cohen on the Russian-Ukranian conflict? and Russia’s popular image? Is he indeed a “Putin apologist” as his critics have said?

Cenk Uygur has a thorough interview and discussion on Russia with Stephen F. Cohen, Professor of Russian Studies at NYU.

Soviet Fates and Lost Alternatives: From Stalinism to the New Cold War:…


  1.…/from-petrodollar-to…/ Would love to see a Young Turks interview with the Writer of the Golem XIV blog, David Malone. Davids Blog is widely read and quoted by various alternative media sources. Davids Geo Political analysis is very thoughtful and challenging to many first galnce impressions of world issues as presented in the main stream.

  2. Ukraine, Libya, Iraq, Syria. Energy is a factor but not so much as the international settlement of Energy contracts in Dollars and the so called petro dollar. The Brics and particularly Russia threaten US Economic Hedgemony by challenging the petro Dollar. This is increasingly obvious and most regime change that is washington driven ammounts to protection of the Dollar. In your discussion Cenq I think this plain corralation to all of the US recent military adventures and Destabilisations is missing its definitely worth throwing into the mix of your analysis.
