Clashes in Kiev on Tuesday left at least 25 people dead as police set fire to the city's main protest camp. Demonstrations began in November when President Viktor Yanukovych rejected an economic deal with the European Union to maintain stronger ties with Russia. We'll discuss the latest crisis, and talk about the road ahead for Ukraine, formerly the second-largest republic in the Soviet Union.

Guests:

Steve Pifer, visiting fellow at the Brookings Institution, former ambassador to Ukraine and former senior director at the National Security Council in the Clinton administration

Roman Shportko, organizer of Euro MaydanSF

Hellmuth Tromm, editor for Bloomberg News in Eastern Europe

Serhii Plokhii, director of the Ukrainian Research Institute

Alexander Motyl, professor of political science at Rutgers University-Newark
