In the 11th episode of REASON, The New Indian show hosted by Editor-in-Chief Aarti Tikoo, senior Russia journalist and author Sergey Strokan speaks in detail on the Russia-Ukraine war, “Ukrainian provocation”, information war by western countries, and Moscow’s relationship with the United States.

Strokan dubs the war, which Russia terms as the “Special Military Operation”, as a fight against “Neo-Nazis” who have been growing in strength in Ukraine in the last eight years.

“Russia was left with no option but to explore military options after diplomatic negotiations with Ukraine failed to elicit any positive result,” he says while accusing the Ukrainian Army of using civilians as human shield.

He says there appears to be a rift in NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization).
