Russian President Vladimir Putin last Thursday ordered troops into Ukraine for a full-scale invasion. With hundreds of casualties already reported, there is no telling when the war will end. In this special broadcast that first aired on WRHU 88.7 FM March 1, listeners will hear from political experts, individuals from former Soviet states, Long Island organizers and reporters, and more to understand the complex history and possible implications of this conflict.
