Xi in Moscow; Parisians in the streets; Putin in The Hague? • IR.lv

An arrest warrant issued by the International Criminal Court this week allowed for the prospect of Russian President Putin being taken in handcuffs to The Hague to face war crimes charges. It may seem unrealistic, but the court’s legal decision already has significant political implications. In this program, Aivars Ozoliņš and Pauls Raudseps introduce the International Criminal Court and its work, evaluate the visit of the Chinese “Emperor” Xi to Moscow, comment on the protests and unrest caused by President Macron’s decision to raise the retirement age in France, and explain the nervousness in the financial markets that led to Switzerland’s second major banks Swiss credit forced marriage with the country’s biggest bank UBS.

In the broadcast Арскат And commentators Aivars Ozoliņš and Pauls Raudseps share their thoughts on current affairs of foreign policy and highlight things noticed in the news, both big and small, that could not happen in Latvia. The podcast is available Ir.lv, Spotify, Apple and Google Podcasts.
