The massive Russian troop build up along the border of Ukraine might be just posturing on the part of Russia’s President Vladimir Putin designed to build support for him at home. Or it might be the prelude to a dangerously destabilizing invasion. Increasingly, intelligence reports are suggesting the latter. The options for the US and the West to stop Russia or to penalize it should it act are limited and as a consequence many experts are beginning to fear the worst may come to pass. We discuss with former Obama Administration Russia and Ukraine expert Evelyn Farkas and with Kori Schake of the American Enterprise Institute, Rosa Brooks of Georgetown University Law School and Ed Luce of the Financial Times. Also discussed: the upcoming Democracy Summit. Don’t miss it.
