COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - Tensions in Ukraine are reaching a crescendo today as that country’s president calls for a day of unity this Wednesday.

President Volodymyr Zelensky says media reports indicate a Russian invasion could begin that day. Despite denials by President Vladimir Putin, U.S. intelligence indicates an invasion could come at any time.

With insight into the situation, Dawndy Mercer Plank talked with Joel Samuels, the executive director of the University of South Carolina’s Rule of Law Collaborative. He’s also the dean of UofSC’s College of Arts and Sciences.
