President Obama in his April visit to Japan commented, "Mr. Putin has had an  
increasing tendency to see the world through a Cold War prism."  But there  
are many questions:

 * is the US/NATO push into Eastern Europe after the collapse of the Soviet
   Union  the real source of tension with Russia?  
 * Did the US government spend five billion dollars for democracy or regime
 * Who are the fascists in the new Kiev government?  
 * Will sanctions isolate Russia?
 * What is behind the conflict in Odessa and Eastern Ukraine and will it lead
   to civil war?

How should the peace movement respond to rising tensions between the two  
biggest nuclear powers and the US shift towards covert war?   The UJP forum  
will examine these issues and possible action items.
