WAMC's Dr. Alan Chartock discusses the announcement by President Joe Biden that the U.S. will ban all Russian oil imports, the world's response to Russia's invasion and the concern of nuclear war.

Dr. Chartock also discusses the arrest of the former chairman of the U.S. right-wing group the Proud Boys, Enrique Tarrio, for his alleged role in plotting the Jan. 6, 2021, assault on the Capitol in a bid to block certification of President Joe Biden's election.

Dr. Alan Chartock is professor emeritus at the University at Albany. He hosts the weekly Capitol Connection series, heard on public radio stations around New York. The program, for almost 12 years, highlighted interviews with Governor Mario Cuomo and now continues with conversations with state political leaders. Dr. Chartock also appears each week on The Media Project and The Roundtable and offers commentary on Morning Edition, weekdays at 7:40 a.m.
