Russia Warns U.S. About Arms Sales to Ukraine as Weapon Makers Reap “Bonanza” from War

This week the Pentagon met with leading U.S. weapons manufacturers as Russia warned the Biden administration to stop arming Ukraine, claiming it was “adding fuel” to the conflict. This comes as a Russian warship sunk in the Black Sea hours after Ukraine claimed to have attacked it with cruise missiles and as Sweden and Finland say, they may join NATO, which would require more weapons spending. Democracy Now! speaks with William Hartung, author of “Prophets of War: Lockheed Martin and the Making of the Military-Industrial Complex.”
