This issue of Black Agenda Report focuses on the U.S. role in the Ukraine crisis. The second phase of the war in Ukraine that brought a direct confrontation between Ukrainian military forces and Russia is approaching its one-year anniversary. We are publishing two new articles, "Black Politics and Ukraine" and "Why and How to End the War in Ukraine." BAR is also reprinting two articles, here and here, that capture the complex economic and geo-political interests that were driving the conflict. Both articles grounded their analysis in the concrete economic and political interests locked in combat as opposed to the liberal focus on what was in the heads of Putin, Biden and Zelensky that characterizes so much of mainstream analysis and has led to the confusion we see around Ukraine today.
