Interview with John Mearsheimer, R. Wendell Harrison distinguished service professor and co-director of the Program on International Security Policy at the University of Chicago, conducted by Scott Harris
Growing tensions between the U.S. and Russia went into high gear after Ukraine's elected president Viktor Yanukovych was ousted from power in February 2014, triggering Russia's decision to annex Crimea and provoking the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine between pro-Russian separatists and the Kiev government's army and militia groups. Now, after the imposition of months of U.S. and European economic sanctions against Vladimir Putin's government, a new more dangerous escalation is underway.
U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter announced on June 23 that the Pentagon will pre-position tanks, artillery and other military equipment in eastern and central Europe, in a move he said was designed to reassure NATO allies alarmed by Russia's actions in Ukraine. Moscow condemned the move, maintaining that this was the most aggressive U.S. act since the end of the Cold War. President Vladimir Putin, stating that Russia was concerned about a U.S./NATO anti-missile defense system near its borders, had decided to deploy more than 40 intercontinental ballistic missiles to its nuclear arsenal this year.
This most recent war of words followed the April launch of six months of military exercises, dubbed Operation Fearless Guardian, that involves 290 American paratroopers and 900 Ukrainian soldiers near the Ukraine-Polish border. Between The Lines' Scott Harris spoke with John J. Mearsheimer, University of Chicago professor of political science and author, who discusses the danger posed by the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, and the escalation of tensions between the U.S., NATO and Russia.
