Ukraine Crisis 

 

Dr. Douglas Blum, professor of political science at Providence College 


The upheaval in Ukraine continues to spiral into an increasingly tense dispute between Russia and the West.

In a recent report from CNN, the United States and many European countries are demanding that Moscow scale back its deployment of troops in Ukraine's southern region of Crimea. But Russian President Vladimir Putin so far appears unfazed by the pressure.

By Russia's account, its soldiers are protecting the human rights of worried, vulnerable Russian citizens. But in the U.S. view, Russia is violating international law.

Caught in the middle is Ukraine's shaky new government.

Dr. Douglas Blum, professor of political science at Providence College, is an expert on Russia, its politics, and international relations. He is an ardent watcher of the events unfolding in Eastern Europe.
