Good evening, listeners! We’ve got a fascinating episode for you this week, as host Richard Aldous speaks with Ambassador John Herbst, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine and director of the Dinu Patriciu Eurasia Center at the Atlantic Council, about the current state of the standoff between Russia and Ukraine.

We then welcome to the show Michel Gurfinkiel, a French journalist and public intellectual who served as editor-in-chief of Valeurs Actuelles from 1985 to 2006, to discuss how the Paris shooting is affecting domestic French politics.
