The crisis in Crimea

Listen

Guests: Steven Pifer and William Burke White
Crimeans cast their votes in yesterday’s referendum on whether the region should secede from Ukraine and join Russia. Meanwhile, Russia raised the threat of invasion by gathering troops, equipment and artillery on the Ukrainian border. This morning on Radio Times, we’ll talk about the fate of Crimea and Ukraine, U.S. relations with Russia, and how the crisis threatens geopolitical alliances. Our guests are STEVEN PIFER, former ambassador to Ukraine and former State Department official WILLIAM BURKE WHITE.
