Ways To Subscribe
Ukrainian and U.S. flags fly in Kyiv, Ukraine.

Russia’s military buildup on the border with Ukraine is visible from satellite images, but while the U.S. sounds the alarm about an imminent attack, Ukraine’s leaders are downplaying the threat.

What’s really happening on the Russia-Ukraine border? What provoked the current discord? Has conflict with Russia become part of Ukraine’s existence?

Have diplomatic efforts been at all successful? Will negotiations continue between the two countries?

What is the United States’ role amid mounting concerns of war? Is “Western aggression” to blame for the crisis, as Russian officials claim?

What happens next, if tensions escalate further?

Guest: Roman Popadiuk, former U.S. Ambassador to the Ukraine
