Ukraine's Prime Minister resigns along with other political leaders

The shake up in the government comes at a critical moment for Ukraine. We’ll discuss the latest developments with Eugene Bondarenko, a freelance journalist and translator and member of the Group for Tomorrow’s Ukraine, an organization of Ukrainian American students reporting on Ukraine.
