Dan Kovalik and Rick Sterling, two antiwar and social justice activists have just returned from a fact-finding trip to Russia, including Crimea. They wanted to speak to Russians and, as people from the U.S., let the Russians know that they opposed the sanctions on Russia and the Western imposed isolation of their country.

Video of the Webinar (held on Saturday, June 3) is now available below.
Dan and Rick wrote three articles for Antiwar.com about their trip:
