The advance of pro-Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine makes it more apparent than ever that the country is splitting up. With more than 5,000 people dead in the war, is there hope that a ceasefire can end the bloodshed?

Joining us to discuss the battle on the ground and over the airwaves are:

Jonathan Alpeyrie, a photojournalist who has covered the conflict for Vanity Fair and CNN:

“The separatists overall have been quite open to Western journalists…In Ukraine’s conflict, journalists are not targeted like in Syria.”

Evgeny Feldman, a photojournalist for the independent Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta:

“If it wasn’t for Russian TV and Russian media, there would be no war at all.”

Riley Waggaman, a deputy for the pro-Kremlin news site Russia Insider:

“Russian media has a perspective that is quite different than what you get in the west. I don’t think that it means that is across the board propaganda though.”
