CrossTalk: Ukrainian Farce

Will the Ukraine's presidential election alienate the people of the east? How will the radicals from the 'Right Sector' react to the election? What is the possibility of Maidan III? And is this a farce masquerading as tragedy? CrossTalking with Richard Weitz, Nebojsa Malic and Alexander Nekrassov.

Despite the election there will still be a split between the east and the west of the country because the right sector protagonists are still part of the government. It will be extremely difficult for Kiev to convince the eastern part of the country to come back into the fold.
