Podcast: Can Ukraine find a unifying national message?

Jeremy Cliffe in Berlin and Emily Tamkin in Washington, DC host the New Statesman's weekly global affairs podcast, World Review.

By NS Caroline

Ido Vock in Odessa joins Jeremy Cliffe in Berlin and Emily Tamkin in Washington, DC to discuss Ukraine’s national identity before its team play their first European Championships quarter-final against England. They ask whether the Russian- and Western-leaning sides of the country can find a unifying message, and look at the efforts of President Volodymyr Zelensky to tackle oligarchs and corruption.

In You Ask Us, they take listener questions on how Ukraine sees it’s relationship with the US after the election of Joe Biden.
