Ukrainian Crisis Debate with Peter Hitchens

Description
As confrontation between Russia and 'The West' has intensified in recent years and months, it has become increasingly difficult to see which side - if any - is in the right.

Join our two panelists as they focus on the ongoing European conflict, and debate the motion that "Russia's behaviour in Ukraine and Crimea has been a reasonable response to severe provocation."

Arguing for the motion is journalist Peter Hitchens, who witnessed life and politics under the former Soviet Union, and is known for his fiery column in The Mail on Sunday. Arguing against the motion is Professor Ammon Cheskin of Glasgow University, an expert in Russian foreign policy and the country's influence in Ukraine
