About This Edition

Bethany Allen-Ebrahimian, Susan Glasser, and Giles Whittell join World Review with Ivo Daalder to discuss Biden’s comments about defending Taiwan against Chinese attack as tensions mount between the US and China over Taiwan. Then, as war aims are shifting on both sides, what is the likely endgame in Russia's war on Ukraine? Plus, how the Russian-Ukraine war is adding to fears of a global food crisis.
