The Price of Protection: Who Pays for War in Ukraine?

After 18 long months of war, the Ukrainian economy is near breaking point, and deeply dependent on western economic and military aid. Will Ukraine ever be able to repay the debts it has accrued? And what will the West ask of Kyiv in return?

Including interviews with Lt Colonel Pavlo Khazan, head of unmanned (drone) systems in the Ukrainian territorial army, and Melaniya Podolyak, a spokesman for the Serhiy Prytula Foundation, a charity that uses private donations to help fund the Ukrainian armed forces, and Rachel Ziemba, Adjunct Senior Fellow at the Center for a New American Security.

Listen to the full program and more from the BBC.
