Ambassador Bill Taylor on Russia - Ukraine Tensions
Host Carol Castiel talks with Ambassador William (Bill) Taylor, V.P. at the U.S. Institute of Peace (USIP), formerly Ambassador to Ukraine, about Moscow’s designs on Ukraine given the ominous Russian troop buildup along the Ukrainian border. Taylor assesses whether the series of high-level meetings recently held in Brussels with NATO and EU representatives and the OSCE in Vienna can stave off a Russian incursion into Ukraine. He affirms that the western alliance is united and prepared to impose punishing sanctions should Russian President Vladimir Putin decide to attack.
