Podcast: Can Ukraine find a unifying national message?

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

In You Ask Us, they answer listeners’ questions about how Ukraine views its relations with the United States after the election of Joe Biden.
