New European weapons for Ukraine: Will they matter?


The video has a duration of 28 minutes and 20 seconds, and it discusses an African peace mission that is set to visit Kyiv and Moscow amidst Russia’s intensified missile attacks. President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has secured further military support from European allies, who have promised more weapons, training, and money. However, they have not provided the F-16 fighter jets that could be a game-changer. As Russia increases its missile attacks ahead of an expected Ukrainian counteroffensive, six African leaders are planning a peace mission to Moscow and Kyiv. The video explores the interests at stake and how they could shift political alliances. The presenter is Nastasya Tay, and the guests are Peter Zalmayev, the Executive Director of Eurasia Democracy Initiative, Samuel Ramani, an Associate Fellow at the Royal United Services Institute and author of the book Putin’s War on Ukraine, and Vladimir Sotnikov, an Associate Professor of International Relations at the Higher School of Economics University and a specialist on Russian foreign affairs.
