Ukraine’s Stronger Hand & Putin’s Missed Opportunity | GZERO World

The Russian military is terrorizing local populations in in eastern Ukraine to force President Volodymyr Zelensky to negotiate after Russia has seized territory in the Donbas region.

Will it work? Perhaps, but Ukraine's objectives have changed, US Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul tells Ian Bremmer on GZERO World.

A month ago, President Volodymyr Zelensky was willing to talk about Ukrainian neutrality and even the size of the country's military.


Now, McFaul says all of those issues are frozen because the Ukrainians' objectives have changed. They feel like time is on their side, while Putin missed an opportunity to get an agreement that's no longer on the table.
