Why is there continuing fighting in Ukraine despite an official ceasefire? Has Ukraine violated regulations? What's going to happen with Crimea? This week's guest on Conflict Zone is Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.
All of Ukraine, minus Crimea, has been declared a new state by Donetsk separatists in the east. Their new nation of 'Malorossiya' has a flag and a map. Germany has condemned it as "completely unacceptable."
Pro-Russian separatists in Donetsk have declared all of Ukraine to be part of "Little Russia." Could the move undo the Minsk Protocol aimed at keeping the peace in the region?
Amid the turmoil of the investigation into collusion with Russia, Donald Trump met with Ukraine's president. But while Petro Poroshenko may look strong to the US, Trump's eastern Ukraine agenda remains unclear.
