Ian Bremmer: Global South won’t back Russia sanctions because of West’s hypocrisy!

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to the president of Eurasia Group and author of ‘The Power of Crisis: How Three Threats--And Our Response--Will Change The World’ Ian Bremmer. He discusses sanctions on Russia, the Global South’s lack of support for sanctions on Russia, the complex relationship between Russia and China as the Russia-Ukraine war continues, and the origins of that war. The interview gets heated as Afshin Rattansi and Ian Bremmer discuss US foreign policy, the role of the World Bank and IMF in causing poverty in Global South countries, the rise of China and allegations over Xinjiang, the US military’s role in climate change and much more.
