Our independent reporting is only possible because we’re funded by you—not by the weapons manufacturers when we cover war or gun violence, not by the oil, gas, coal, or nuclear companies when we cover the climate crisis. Can you donate right now and help us unlock a special $25,000 gift? If 200 people donate to Democracy Now! today, a generous donor will contribute $25,000 in support of our independent journalism. Every donation counts, so please do your part. Thank you!

Specter of War Remains After Talks Fail to Resolve Tensions on Russia-Ukraine Border

HeadlineJan 14, 2022

Tensions over Russia’s military buildup on the Ukraine border remain high after a week of diplomatic talks failed to achieve any concrete resolution to the crisis and to Russia’s demands that NATO curb its eastward expansion. Russia said Friday it is giving the U.S. and NATO until next week to respond to its demands. On Thursday, Russia’s deputy foreign minister suggested its military could deploy to Venezuela and Cuba in response to escalating tensions with the U.S. Meanwhile, Russian-led troops have started withdrawing from Kazakhstan. A violent crackdown on protests this month killed at least 160 people and saw some 10,000 others arrested.
