The Conflict Initiated By The Russian Invasion Has Escalated From A Localised Act of Aggression Into A Full-Blown Proxy War Between NATO and Russia

It is scarcely hyperbole to say that the world is closer to a great power war – even a nuclear one – than it has been for sixty years.

For years, from Mali to Afghanistan, I have worked for peace and risked my life for it. It is therefore not a question of justifying war, but of understanding what led us to it. I notice that the “experts” who take turns on television analyze the situation on the basis of dubious information, most often hypotheses erected as facts—and then we no longer manage to understand what is happening. This is how panics are created.
