We’re tracking three major storylines with significant implications for the Tri-State region including the ongoing effort to reunite Ukrainian New Yorkers with their families overseas as the war and refugee crisis intensifies.  We’ll also bring you the latest on the push to seize New York real estate from Russian oligarchs.  And, we’ll discuss a significant pandemic milestone as Mayor Eric Adams lifts the mask mandate for public school students and removes the proof-of-vaccine requirement for restaurants, bars and gyms. Plus, what’s next for the fight against AAPI hate after a suspect is charged with attacking seven Asian women in Manhattan.  Joining us to discuss the issues are: Andrij Dobriansky, Director of Communications for the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America, the non-profit organization raising humanitarian aid; Saladin Ambar, a Rutgers University political science professor and senior scholar at the school’s Eagleton Institute of Politics; and Alyssa Katz, Deputy Editor at The City, the news website covering New York.
