Season 12, Episode 58 of 99

In December, nearly six years after Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine and began a war that has killed more than 13,000 people, the two sides met for peace talks. While an immediate draw down in the conflict was not achieved during the meeting in Paris between Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy and Russian President Vladimir Putin, Zelenskiy indicated he will maintain the push to bring peace to the region. The meeting came as Ukraine was playing a central role in the eventual House impeachment of President Trump and the ongoing trial in the U.S. Senate, and just months after Zelenskiy, a comedic actor and political neophyte, swept into Ukraine's highest office. On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend will look back at the conflict, Zelenskiy's rise to the presidency, and the significance Ukraine continues to hold in the geopolitical battle between the U.S. and Russia.
