Upload April 21,2022

It’s been nearly two months since Russian forces invaded neighbouring Ukraine. The conflict has killed countless civilians and displaced millions. Now, Moscow says it’s shifting its focus to the east – where it’s increased its assault in the Donbas region. The U.S., British and Canadian leaders have promised to send more weapons to Ukrainian forces. Many say this is a crucial stage of the conflict and could lead to the break-up of Ukraine. So, what are the human costs?

Presenter: Kim Vinnell Guests: Halyna Yachenko – Member of the Ukrainian Parliament and Secretary of the National Presidential Council. Pavel Felgenhauer – Defence and Military Analyst for Novaya Gazetta, an independent newspaper –(this is to my mind a highly questionable description of this commentator). Theresa Fallon – Director of the Centre for Russia Europe Asia Studies.
