Matthew Rojansky participated in a panel on The Diane Rehm Show to discuss Western reaction to the conflict between Russia and Ukraine ahead of a referendum for Crimean secession. 

"It was clear to Putin from the beginning that this was going to be a line-crossing maneuver. As soon as he occupied Crimea, as soon as he sought to trigger and deepen the divisions that we see within Ukrainian society in order to effectively undermine the sovereignty of this new government in Ukraine, he was declaring that all bets were off," Rojansky said.
