How will the Ukraine emerge from its ongoing crisis? Former president Yanukovych is on the run, Russia is ordering massive military drills, and the United States and Europe weigh their options. American University experts Keith Darden and Anton Fedyashin will discuss the current situation, possible outcomes, and the roles Russia, Europe and the United States could play.
Darden recently had opinion pieces in the International New York Times and Washington Post’s Monkey Cage blog concerning the conflict in Ukraine.
