The feature program “The Spreading Shadow” investigates the role played by the United States and NATO in the Russia-Ukraine conflict, and reveals the negative impact the economic sanctions imposed on Russia has had on Europe and the wider world. The program also investigates the potentially damaging effects of the efforts by the United States – specifically through the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework – and NATO to gain influence in the Asia-Pacific region. Ultimately, “The Spreading Shadow” exposes how the United States and NATO, which call themselves the defenders of the world order, are in fact undermining global peace and stability. Since the outbreak of COVID-19, social welfare institutions, including food depots, have become a vital source of food for many Americans. Denver, Colorado, is a city that has been particularly hard-hit. For many families that are unable to make ends meet, mobile food distribution trucks have become the main resources of their daily lives.
