Here is what Roman suggests that you know about him:
My name is Roman Sheremeta, I am a professor of economics at Case Western Reserve University, and I can comment about the possible conflict in Ukraine.
I have expressed my interest for several reasons. First, I study conflict and conflict resolution in economics and political science and thus this is my direct area of expertise. Second, I have been following the development of the events since day one, since I am a native born Ukrainian. Third, the very first protesters were the students of Kyiv and Mohula Academy - my Alma Mater - and so the situation is very personal to me.
Despite personal connections to the situation, I believe that I can adequately describe the situation from both sides and explain both from political and economic perspectives why conflict has escalated in Ukraine.
Let me know, if you would be interested to have me for an interview.Best regards,Roman
