About This Episode

Jamil Anderlini, Bobby Ghosh, and Giles Whittell join World Review with Ivo Daalder to cover the latest news from Ukraine: more weapons, more sanctions, and more evidence that Russia is willing to escalate the conflict in new ways. Then, COVID-19 lockdowns in China prompt Chinese criticisms of Xi Jinping’s zero-COVID policy, whether the French election is Macron's to lose, and how Boris Johnson is staying in charge...for now.
