What should the U.S. do amidst the Russia invasion of Ukraine? UNLV political science professor weighs in
As President Joe Biden last night outlined for the world a growing list of sanctions against Russia, Ukrainians in Las vegas watched.
Russia’s unprovoked invasion on their home country, where their family and friends are fighting, fleeing or sheltering to stay alive, is a nightmare come to life.
An estimated 20,000 Ukrainians live in Las Vegas. We’ll be talking to a few of them in a minute, but you’re a big part of this conversation too: Does this invasion, the first large-scale land war in Europe since World War 2, make you feel differently about THIS country—about the divisions here? Do you fear the use of nuclear weapons by Russia? What more do you think the U.S. should do?
