Michael Shank, Ph.D., associate director for legislative affairs at the Friends Committee on National Legislation and adjunct faculty at George Mason University’s School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution discusses with CCTV’s Elaine Reyes the ceasefire in Ukraine. Shank examines the factors that will embolden or undermine the ceasefire, talks between Presidents Poroshenko and Putin, prisoner swaps, NATO’s involvement, EU sanctions, Russian threats to shutdown airspace and gas imports, US-Ukraine military exercises, political deal making for eastern Ukraine’s separatists, and more.
