  • 192 - 171. How significant is Russia's Alliance with North Korea

    This week Vladimir Putin met with fellow autocrat - the North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un in another public demonstration of what is being touted as another step in the construction of a new security block to challenge the dominance of the West. Patrick and Saul discuss what this means for the war in Ukraine and how worried should we be? To help them answer this they talk to Roger Boyes, veteran foreign correspondent and very distinguished Diplomatic Editor of the London Times.

  • 190 - 169. Taking on Russian propaganda

    In a special bonus episode Patrick and Saul speak to Russian-American Ilya Nuzov, who is the Head of Eastern Europe and Central Asia Desk for the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH). Ilya and his team have submitted a Communication under Article 15 of the Rome Statute to the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), drawing the Court’s attention to the criminal nature of hate speech in Russian media that has fuelled international crimes in Ukraine, and seeking to compel the Prosecutor’s Office to apply for arrest warrants.

  • 189 - 168. Will Russia loose its satellite navigation?

    This week Saul and Patrick look at the interesting developments that have emerged both on and off the battlefield. Noticeably the results of the relaxation of the use of western weapons by Ukraine inside Russia proper, and the success of far-right parties in the recent EU elections, particularly in Germany and France - which could potentially result in declining EU support for Ukraine. We also have some fascinating correspondence from our cyber security expert David Alexander, who highlights the perilous situation that Russia's GLONASS (Global Navigation Satellite System) finds itself in.

    In this latest episode of Battleground '44, Patrick tells us of the heroic stand made by American airborne forces at the small Normandy village of Graignes, in the often forgotten and overlooked Battle of Graignes. However, there is a darker side of the story with the sobering details of the brutal reprisals that the German SS division son inflicted on the innocent villagers and injured American servicemen once they retook the village.
