The war in Ukraine has exacerbated geopolitical relations in the world. What does the war mean for our relationship with America? And how should we relate to Russia in the future?
Annette and Mathieu speak with Renée Jones-Bos, former ambassador to Moscow and Washington DC. Does she think that the European sanctions have an effect on Putin’s actions? And – if it comes to that – how do you negotiate with Russian diplomats? She also talks about the way the Americans view Russia and Europe.
We also connect with Derk Marseille in Berlin to talk about the Zeitenwende – the major change in German foreign and defense policy following this war. How does that take shape?
