About This Episode

Steve Erlanger, Karen DeYoung, and Ed Luce join World Review with Ivo Daalder to discuss Russia’s attacks on Ukraine as negotiations between both sides continue. They examine whether a peace deal is possible, the West’s endgame on Russia, and what a historic diplomatic summit between Arab, Israeli, and American officials in Israel tells us about geopolitics and the Iran deal.


Episode Note: In explaining how some Russian troops might see a difference between fighting Ukrainians, who Vladimir Putin has referred to as "brothers," and fighting Chechens, guest Steven Erlanger used a slang, offensive term, which he regrets. He meant no offense.
