Officials from Ukraine, the United States, the European Union and Russia have taken the first steps toward a pact aimed at de-escalating tensions between Ukraine and pro-Russian separatists. But separatist leaders have given no indication they will sign the deal, and continue to call for the removal of the government in Kiev. We look at the latest news from the region, and examine what this means for the rest of the world.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Andrew Kramer, reporter for The New York Times currently in Ukraine
  • Stephen Cohen, professor emeritus of Russian studies and politics at New York University and Princeton University, contributing editor to The Nation and author of books including "Soviet Fates and Lost Alternatives"
