Putin in Beijing, Blinken in Kiev, Robert Fico shot: The weekly roundup


On this week’s weekly roundup of Direct Impact, Rick Sanchez discusses all of the latest stories of the previous week. Why was Vladimir Putin celebrated in Beijing during a state visit while Antony Blinken wiled his time away playing rock and roll in war-torn Ukraine? Who shot Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico and is there more to the story? And is the success of Russian forces in Ukraine’s Kharkov Region the reason Ukraine is shelling civilians in Russia’s Belgorod? Rick is joined by Craig ‘Pasta’ Jardula, political analyst and podcast host, as well as Mel K., host of The Mel K. Show, to talk about all of this and more.
