This week marks two years since protesters toppled Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich. Today, the country faces rampant corruption, an ongoing political crisis and a conflict in the east of the country that has resulted in more than 9,000 deaths and nearly 1.4 million internally displaced people.

At the forefront of the 2014 protests was Vitali Klitschko, the former heavyweight champion who is now the mayor of Kiev.

In this week's Headliner, Mehdi Hasan speaks to Klitschko, one of the rising political figures in Ukraine, who says Russia is to blame for a new Cold War.
