BBC Newsnight: Putin’s power: Can anyone stop the Russian president?


March 08,2022

The latest peace talks on the Ukraine war end without a breakthrough. Can anyone stop Putin?

TRussian shelling is still preventing the evacuation of civilians from besieged cities such as Kyiv, Mariupol, Sumy and Kharkiv, according to the Ukrainian government.

A third round of peace talks ended without a breakthrough, but a fourth round will take place today. Who in Moscow is orchestrating what Western leaders are calling war crimes? And what can stop President Putin?

Newsnight’s international editor Gabriel Gatehouse reports. This report contains strong language.

Kirsty Wark is joined by former UK ambassador to Russia Sir Tony Brenton and Putin’s former economic policy adviser Andrei Illarionov.

Newsnight is the BBC’s flagship news and current affairs TV programme – with analysis, debate, exclusives, and robust interviews.
