On Monday, February 21, 2022, Russia's highest body, the Russian Federation Council unanimously authorised President Vladimir Putin to use military force outside the Russian borders. Days later, President Vladimir Putin launched a large-scale invasion of Ukraine by announcing a ‘special military operation’ in eastern Ukraine as missiles began to rain on hundred of locations across Ukraine, including the capital, Kyiv.

A fortnight in, there's no turning back for Vladimir Putin. His ground forces have progressed in stops and starts, while shelling Ukrainian cities and the civilians trapped inside. So is it really going to plan for the Kremlin? For Ukrainians, it's a blunt choice of fight or flight. In this debate we get the latest both from inside the country and among NATO allies who have made it clear they're not putting boots on the ground, but are continuing to step up support.

A week in, the Russian invasion of Ukraine is not going to plan for Vladimir Putin, but there is nevertheless destruction and sadly much death. The biggest nuclear power station in Europe, Zaporizhzhia, is now controlled by Russian forces. It could provoke a nuclear disaster six times the size of Chernobyl.

Our guests look back at a harrowing week of war.

The war in Ukraine may be keeping Emmanuel Macron off the campaign trail, but the benefit to the French president has been clear: for the first time, a poll over the weekend saw him getting more than 30 percent of votes in the first round. The conflict has given Macron an opportunity to demonstrate his leadership.
