In this final episode before Christmas the team discuss the implications of the UK General Election, before Ben meets Ukrainian opposition politician Svyatoslav Vakarchuk.
As the dust begins to settle after an intense general election campaign in the UK, Ben and Agnes are joined by Tom Raines to reflect on the implications of Boris Johnson's victory for British domestic politics and the UK's policy overseas.
Svyatoslav Vakarchuk is a Ukrainian activist and politician, who in 2019 founded a new political party, Golos. In legislative elections this year the party made a statement by winning 20 seats in the Ukrainian parliament. Ben meets Svyatoslav to discuss the challenges facing Ukraine at home and abroad.
