The U.S. and Europe diverge over how to deal with Russia
At a press conference earlier today Russian president Vladimir Putin said Russia could use “all options” to protect its

We’ll take a look at how the U.S. and Europe are responding to the ongoing crisis in Ukraine with Michael Cohen, a columnist for The Guardian and a fellow at the Century Foundation.
