Ukraine Crisis Discussion

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Doctor Paul Foster, from MSU Billings' Office of International Studies, brings the campus together Monday night to talk about the current crisis in Ukraine.

Nearly seventy-five people attended the lecture.

Foster says it's important to display the facts for people who may be misinformed. He also says the next few weeks could be potentially difficult for Russians and Ukrainians. He believes Vladimir Putin's next moves depend on sanctions placed against him.

Olena South and Lesya Zakharchenko are natives of Ukraine, and both believe Putin is making his moves to increase his power throughout Europe.

"The future is very difficult to predict, but one thing is for certain -- Crimea is, for the foreseeable future, in the hands of Russia," says Foster.

"I think it's very sweet piece of pie for Putin, Crimea, but there's nothing about the people. It's very painful," said Zakharchenko.

"It is painful, I'm just losing my mind just to think about it. What about next? You know, what's next he wants?" said South.

Foster believes the United States and others need to be careful with moving forward.
