This week, we provide an update on the war in Ukraine, and it’s certainly not surprising to find out that Kiev is losing badly at this stage, and looks set to lose even more territory this week, including a potentially game-changing defeat in the ‘cauldron’ of the Donbass. In Europe, NATO is on the move in its bid to encircle Russia and drive Europe towards a larger conflict, with more western countries being pulled into NATO, as the US and Britain hope to use smaller weaker countries like Sweden and Finland as geopolitical cannon fodder in their mission to weaken and achieve regime change in Russia. Also, a British mercenary has been captured in Donbass by DPR forces and is due to face trial for war crimes – with a potential sentence of prison or capital punishment. This story could end up becoming politically explosive in UK. We also ask question about the issue of child trafficking being run out of Ukraine. All this and much more.
Co-hosts Mike Robinson and Patrick Henningsen, with Alex Thomson and Vanessa Beeley for the end of week news round-up. Watch:
