Russian military build-up near Ukrainian border: As tensions soar, is an invasion imminent?

As tensions soar on the Ukraine-Russia border over the military build-up, France 24 is joined by Yves Doutriaux, Professor, State Councillor, and Former Deputy Spokesperson for the French Foreign Ministry. Mr. Doutriaux sees two possible scenarios: diplomacy or all-out confrontation. Russia could very well be seeking a diplomatic solution, illustrated in the "scenario of last spring," explains Mr. Doutriaux. "They put pressure militarily, exactly the same way they are doing now, more or less. And they achieve their desired outcome in getting a July summit with President Biden in Geneva. So that's a positive scenario." But Mr. Doutriaux also warns of possible "continued pressure on Ukraine by many means. And it could be very serious for Europe, as we are on the frontlines."
