India, Germany cogitate on Ukraine

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s short visit to Germany pegged on the Indian-German Intergovernmental Commission meeting in Berlin on Monday inevitably came to focus on the Ukraine crisis. The western media would have loved to grill Modi on India’s reluctance to criticise Russia’s special military operation in Ukraine.

Russia May Close Air Routes to Asia If EU Introduces Sanctions Against Aeroflot – Expert

In this episode of The Source, we interview Alejandra Mejía, who is Chief Editor of Migrant Roots Media. We talk about the ‘Policy Report: An Analysis of the Biden-Harris Administration Plan for Central America’ by Migrant Roots Media. We examine in what way the $4 billion strategy for Central America of the Biden administration “bolsters a neoliberal development plan”. We also discuss whether this approach is different from the one of the previous administrations – both Democrats and Republicans. Finally, we also talk about Kamala Harris’ first international trip as Vice President to Guatemala and Mexico and what came out of that visit.
