Last week Russian president Vladimir Putin ordered an invasion of Ukraine, reshaping world affairs and prompting mass suffering within Ukraine. In this installation of the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast Galen talks about the ongoing war and how Russian and Western tensions came to a head in Ukraine with Samuel Charap, a Russian/Eurasian expert from the RAND Corporation.
Galen also discusses how the Ukraine-Russia conflict is affecting American politics with FiveThirtyEight staffers and Amelia Thomson-Deveaux outlines how Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation could affect the Supreme Court.
