The MAZZ-INT Blog by Joe Mazzafro

Joe Mazzafro 03/11/2014 - The Future is Now?
There is no doubt that the situation in the Ukraine where Russian political and economic interests are pitted against those of Western Europe, and by extension to the U.S., is the most serious confrontation with Russia since the war in Kosovo.
