Russia versus the West
Play • 25 min

We’re almost a week into a war in Europe.

Vladimir Putin, in his quest for land and legacy, has begun bombing civilian areas in Ukrainian cities.

But his war appears to not be going to plan. The Ukrainian army is strong, the resistance is strong and the West has united against Russia with sanctions and support.

But what will Putin do next?

Today, Kiran Moodley speaks with foreign affairs correspondent Jonathan Rugman about the Russian advance on Kyiv, what’s going on in Putin’s mind, and whether the Western squeeze on Russia will bring this to a close.
