Ukraine's resolve challenged after two years of Putin's relentless war
Amanpour
Feb 24, 2024

After two years of bipartisan pledges to help for as long as it takes, Ukraine's future is more uncertain than ever - as Congress dithers and an opportunistic Putin plots his next move. Christiane is on location in Kyiv for what could be a turning point in the war. Christiane finds the mood on streets has changed dramatically since her last visit. There is still the unity of purpose from people and government officials. But there is also a feeling of high anxiety, as Russia ramps up military pressure and the flow of allied military aid is reduced to a trickle. Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba tells Christiane that weapons delays are to blame for Russia's biggest strategic win in months. Then, U.S. Under Secretary of State Victoria Nuland just got back from Ukraine, where she met with senior government officials and wounded warriors. She has been at the heart of America's Russia policy for decades, serving in a variety of critical posts, including Ambassador to NATO. Christiane asks Nuland if - and when - she thinks Congress will send Ukraine the urgently needed aid that it promised. From the Amanpour Archive this week, the pro-democracy Ukrainian president poisoned in an assassination attempt, running against a pro-kremlin candidate. Hear Christiane’s 2005 conversation with Viktor Yushchenko, and the ghastly foretelling of the fate of Putin’s nemesis, Alexei Navalny. In this week’s Letter from London, director Jonathan Glazer tells Christiane why his chilling Oscar-nominated movie The Zone of Interest is more relevant than ever. And finally, the Ukraine battlefield meets ballet. When Russia's full-scale invasion erupted, Alexei Ratmansky was thrust into the geopolitical spotlight. The acclaimed choreographer, who has roots in Ukraine and Russia, tells Christiane about the “haunting” image that inspired his new ballet, Solitude.
