Ian Explains: Russia’s Moves Toward Ukraine | GZERO World with Ian Bremmer

Russia has long feared that Ukraine would someday join NATO, Ian Bremmer explains on GZERO World. No way, says Putin, who's demanding serious concessions from Joe Biden and his Western allies.


Putin regards the collapse of the Soviet Union as the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the 20th century. He believes Russians and Ukrainians are one people.

But most Ukrainians disagree, especially after Russia seized Crimea and began supporting Russian separatists in the Donbas in 2014.
