Katrina Vanden Heuvel: Smart Diplomacy Can Still Resolve the Ukraine Crisis Without War

As President Biden warns of an imminent Russian invasion of Ukraine, France has secured a commitment from both Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin to meet at a summit in an effort to defuse the escalating tension. Democracy Now! speaks to veteran journalist Katrina Vanden Heuvel, whose latest article for The Washington Post, “A path out of the Ukraine crisis,” argues both leaders must work to avoid a catastrophic war. “There’s a bluffing that could be taken more lightly, except this is the most dangerous confrontation between the United States, NATO, and Russia in decades,” says Vanden Heuvel.
