70th anniversary of NATO, comedian Zelensky wins first round of Ukrainian elections! (E733)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to former assistant deputy secretary general for strategic communications at NATO, Michael Stopford, on the 70th anniversary of the creation of NATO. He discusses its achievements, its controversies – such as the bombing of Yugoslavia and Libya, cold relations with Russia and why the NATO-Russia relationship should not be viewed through such a confrontational paradigm. Next, we speak to Dr Lisa McKenzie, sociologist at Middlesex University, for Broken News. She discusses the 4.1 million children in the UK now living in poverty, according to the DWP, as well as cancer-causing chemicals found in the area near Grenfell Tower, and why there needs to be a march to save Britain instead of stopping Brexit. Finally, we speak to former Soviet election monitor Nicolai Petro on the Ukraine’s presidential elections, in which comedian Volodymyr Zelensky won the first round, his upcoming battle with Poroshenko in the second round, and the war in Donbass!
