Podcast: When Putin's Ukraine War Went Global

One year after MH17, the pressure on Putin mounts.

One year after the downing of Flight MH17 killed 298 people from 10 countries on four continents, the evidence continues to mount that pro-Moscow seperatists in Ukraine -- and perhaps Russia itself -- were responsible.

And as the evidence piles up, pressure is building for an international tribunal to prosecute the guilty parties -- pressure Russia is strenuously trying to resist.

On the latest Power Vertical Podcast, we discuss MH17 one year later. Joining me are James Miller, managing editor of The Interpreter magazine, who authored a new report on MH17; and Andreas Umland, a senior research fellow at the Institute for Euro-Atlantic Cooperation and editor of the academic book series Soviet And Post-Soviet Politics And Society.

Also making an appearance on the podcast is Han ten Broeke, a member of the Dutch parliament who chairs its Defense Committee and the Netherlands' delegation to the NATO Assembly.
