Russia http://wamc.org en Vox Pop : Open Forum on 7/22/14 : What To Do About Putin? http://wamc.org/post/vox-pop-open-forum-72214-what-do-about-putin <p>The world has been watching Russia and Ukraine since last week's downing of a Malaysia Airlines jet that killed 298 civilians. Even as investigators comb the contested site, Russian President Vladimir Putin has sought to blame Kiev for breaking a cease-fire with pro-Russian separatists. What should the U.S. do about this global hotspot? And is Putin soul-less, as Vice President Biden reportedly told the Russian leader, or just cynical?
