Amid the new outbreaks of violence in Kiev, I’m putting together a piece looking at where the United States and Russia stand on the issue, specifically on the huge strategic positions both sides stand to gain or lose in the conflict. From what analysis I’ve seen, it’s incidents like these that threaten to re-freeze relations between East and West, thus starting a new Cold War.
For the time being, this page by the BBC does a fantastic job of explaining the facts upfront on what sparked the crisis and specifically the latest clashes. I will be providing a deeper behind-the-scenes analysis next Thursday the 27th when we can see if the current situation will stabilize or grow worse.
