This interview is from SDPB's daily public-affairs show, In the Moment, hosted by Lori Walsh.

It's been about a week since Russia launched a large scale military attack on Ukraine. Approximately a million refugees have fled the nation. The Ukrainian military defense includes thousands of volunteer troops training to defend their homeland for the first time. Meanwhile, the U.S. has increased economic sanctions on Russia. The call for further sanctions on the Russian energy sector is increasing, as is the call for scrutiny of Russian wealth held in private trusts in the U.S.
