Fragile Ceasefire In Place In Eastern Ukraine

It’s been nearly two years since pro-Russian rebels launched a fight to create their own region in eastern Ukraine. Russia has supported that fight with troops and weapons.

A fragile ceasefire is in place, but the debate continues in Moscow and Kiev about what the future holds for the divided region.

Tom Burridge, BBC’s correspondent in Kiev, has just returned from the front line. He speaks with Here & Now‘s Robin Young about what he saw.
