Ukraine and Russia on the Brink

Cross-border tensions over the separatist rebellion in eastern Ukraine have reached a boiling point as violent attacks and evidence of expanding Russian intervention have claimed lives -- and international goodwill -- in recent weeks. With both sides engaged in a shadowy war of threats and attacks, reports from the ground show new evidence of Russian troops and equipment entering Ukrainian territory. With sanctions already on the books against Russia, the international community meets today in Brussels to contemplate its next move. Kojo explores the increasingly dangerous standoff between Russia and Ukraine.
