I am scheduled to join Julian Charles later this month for another interview on his podcast ‘The Mind Renewed’. We will be discussing issues related to my recent article “Russia and Britain: An Enduring but Fruitless Rivalry”.
We shall be joined once again by the lawyer and university lecturer Adeyinka Makinde for a conversation centred on his excellent article, “Russia and Britain: An Enduring but Fruitless Rivalry”, which was recently published at Global Research and especially recommended by the Director of Global Research, Prof. Michel Chossudovsky.
“The ongoing crisis between Britain and the Russian Federation over the poisoning of a former GRU colonel on British soil is the latest episode in what for a number of years has effectively been a ‘Cold War’ between Russia on the one hand, and the Western alliance nations comprised of NATO and the European Union on the other. It is important, nonetheless, to note that friction and dissonance between Russia and Britain has been an enduring one spanning the centuries. It is a rivalry that has been predicated on cultural differences, ideological antagonism and imperial ambition.” - Makinde.
Adeyinka Makinde trained for the law as a barrister. He lectures in criminal law and public law at a university in London, and has an academic research interest in intelligence & security matters. He is a contributor to a number of websites for which he has written essays and commentaries on international relations, politics and military history. He has served as a programme consultant and provided expert commentary for BBC World Service Radio, China Radio International and the Voice of Russia.
