Russian and Ukrainian delegations met for talks Monday as fighting continues in Ukraine.

Russian President Vladimir Putin put Russia's nuclear forces on high alert over the weekend in a significant escalation of his military threat — even if so far the move has had little practical effect.

Host Peter O'Dowd speaks with Here & Now security analyst Jim Walsh, senior research associate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Security Studies Program.

This segment aired on February 28, 2022.
