The Russia-Ukraine Affair – “my lie is truer than your lie"

Larry Black will review a summary of causes, consequences, and ramifications of the conflict in Ukraine.  There will be particular emphasis on the short and long term manifestations of propaganda, myth making, name calling, and unchecked meddling on the part of all foreign actors, including Ottawa.
