Six Months of War in Ukraine, Global Droughts, Finnish Partygate
About This Episode
Ukraine marks its Independence Day six months since the start of Russia’s invasion. What shape has this brutal war left either side in, and where does the conflict go from here? Plus, extreme heat and record-breaking droughts have left countries around the world scorched and in short food supply as weather extremes become the norm. And finally, how to read the countervailing barrage of criticism, and upswell of support for Finland’s Prime Minister Sanna Marin facing criticism over “partygate” videos.
Joining Council President Ivo Daalder to discuss are Karen DeYoung of the Washington Post, Ryan Heath of POLITICO, and Stefan Kornelius of Süddeutsche Zeitung.
