Prof Wolff joins Dialogue Works to discuss the historical and current European and global politics surrounding Russia and Europe's relationship with the United States. He contends that Europe has often been the aggressor in historical conflicts with Russia and questions the notion of Russia as a contemporary threat. Wolff argues that U.S. policy seeks to make Europe bear the costs of American confrontation with China and BRICS, while Europe risks economic and political stability due to sanctions against Russia. He suggests that Europe must choose its path carefully, potentially finding an independent role or aligning with the U.S. or BRICS, with far-reaching implications for its future. Lastly, Wolff emphasizes that internal opposition in Israel is strong and warns against the endless cycle of violence without resolution.
