A Ukrainian serviceman stands at his position at the line of separation between Ukraine-held territory and rebel-held territory near Svitlodarsk, eastern Ukraine, on Wednesday.

The war in Ukraine shows little chance of slowing down after the Crimean bridge was destroyed and Russia launched massive missile strikes in Ukraine.

In this hour, we get an update from Washington Post National Security reporter Missy Ryan, reporting from Kyiv.

We also hear from a Ukrainian American who has committed to staying and working to aid the war effort in Ukraine.

And later, we talk to a refugee who arrived in Connecticut after the war.

GUESTS:

  • Missy Ryan - National Security Correspondent at the Washington Post. She is currently reporting from Kyiv, Ukraine 
  • Katy Bloss - resident of Gilford, Connecticut
  • Nina Opanasenko - Ukrainian refugee living in Connecticut
  • Dana Bucin - Immigration Attorney at Murtha Cullina and Honorary Consul of Romania to Connecticut 
  • Larissa Babij - writer, translator and dancer living in Kyiv, Ukraine. Her newsletter is “A Kind of Refugee.”
