A protester wearing a Ukrainian flag speaks to riot police in Kiev on December 9, 2013.

Last month, Ukraine's embattled president Viktor Yanukovych sparked huge street protests after he refused to sign an economic agreement with the European Union. We'll discuss the ongoing political turmoil in a country divided between those sympathetic to Russia and those wanting to strengthen ties to the European Union.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Arkady Ostrovsky, Moscow correspondent for The Economist
