"Marco Werman. This is the world. We're all glad you could make it here this Monday. Now it's Zielinski turn since two thousand. Fourteen war in eastern Ukraine has killed more than thirteen thousand people. White House pressure on Vladimir reporting ambitions than Ukraine seems to have been fruitless so today Ukrainian President Volodin Music Linski sat down himself with Putin in Paris to find a way out of the conflict. No one expects a quick resolution from these talks today it is a big test for his Alinsky and his first ever meeting with Putin back home. Ukrainians are watching carefully. Protesters in Ukraine's capital this week were chanting freedom to Ukraine. They are critics of Presidents Alinsky. And so he's Balodia Mirror array of. I caught up with him today while he was visiting to Boise. Georgia array of is a member of the Ukrainian opposition party in parliament. He says Alinsky is not prepared. Word for these talks for Mr Putin. This time is best to have negotiations as well as the United States is very focused on its own turmoil. Moyle cost my mistress LESKIV and without this support it looks like who you are along. The best results of that negotiations in hidden tonight is resolved. Why would result in Paris? Be a good thing. We cannot trust any agreements with the Russian Federation. So these point should be a basic for Mr Lansky never trust Putin and John's counts on possible agreements agreements that might be signed after the Normandy. Format meeting might be signed well or not let me ask you this. So Ukraine doesn't feel the support from the. US is right now. What does that mean for presidents alinsky reputation at home? I think. Now it's a matter not as lansky personal reputation but it's a reputation for Ukraine's and the situation what we are faced to the United States. Well you know I can compare it to the very very popular in the United States. Super Bowl Games now. It looks like the Senate Republican or Democrat teams and the ball is Ukraine and during game. No one cares about the ball to be an object of insurer. American police seats is not bring cycle consequences for that object. Well it's really not expecting an American football analogy but Thanks for that anyway. I mean there are concerns about capitulation in these talks in Ukraine. But isn't the president's Alinsky right. Don't you need to have some sort of dialogue with Russia to at least start to end this war to have a dialogue with Russia means that Russia shoot via radiation to end this war day. Could pretend at stake may making us step forward to these. He's at the same time. Getting results Russia will come back To eat the usual style of conduct and aggression rationed will be ongoing so only one thing needed for awhile. It's to keep on sanctions until Rushton situation will be ready. Floreal bees not for indication who singing in the background. I'm sorry for that again I cannot. It's Georgia Mr. IRA have one more thing. I want to ask you about The Ukrainian public because Volodin Amir's Alinsky won by a landslide last spring in the Ukrainian presidential elections and and surely with the war. In the Dumbass in the background Ukrainians must have believed. That's Alinsky had some skills our strategy for dealing with Putin. Why did they vote for him? If they didn't thank he could be. A peacemaker. Should promise to be a peacemaker. It's a completely different stories. We deal with such a player like Russia duration so made its choice by emotions. It was not so rational choice we signed on that sleek exceed TV serious servant of the people that were Zilinskiene old show and people somehow trust the hero of the series whereas Alinsky Alinsky plays as the president of Ukraine. So there were implication of people hopes they stipulate their wishes for his as a personality than choose the people with the real program and the real background vladamir array of is a member of the Ukrainian parliament has political critical party European solidarity part of the opposition to President Vladimir Zielinski. Thank you very much for your time array of thank you more on Ukraine and the fight against corruption there later this hour here on the world in the UK it's untrustworthy versus unlikable according to much of the British public that's the grim political reality. l'idee staring them in the face on Thursday the UK will hold its third national election in four years and depending on where they live.

"Is the Director General of the Russian International Affairs Council. A top think tank based in Moscow. On what what is your sense of how Russians reacting to what they are watching witnessing or hearing about in Washington. Well I think that if if you dig the Ukrainian dimension many in Moscow might be happy that finally the US attention has done deve from Russia. it doesn't mean that It has done the way forever but for the time being it might be a break on the other hand. I don't think that many in Moscow are happy about the impeachment procedure in Washington. Because they understand perfectly well that all the astronomers president can fix problems comes with Moscow week. President is not in a position to mobilize political support inside his own country to deal with Moscow successfully but to to what extent is the feeling that Ukraine is now properly being accused by some Republicans of Disliking taking the president. The President says it himself is there are certain kind of glean that is there. Is there kind of happiness in Moscow. The Ukrainians are being are under attack in some sense while the Russian Ukrainian relations are very emotional. And of course. There's a lot of animosity take towards the former Ukrainian elite the perception the predominant perception in Moscow is that these people uh not honest that they're ready to use various schemes and I think that In this story they see a confirmation off of How they saw the formula Kenyan leadership it does not necessarily related to Mr Lansky but it is definitely related to his predecessor? Sir and Fiona Hill says that this the idea that Ukraine was involved in the hacking of the two thousand sixteen election is a fiction and it is essentially essentially disinformation that is being propagated by Russia by the Russian government. What's your what's your response? Well I know on the he'll end I have a lot of respect towards funeral. He'll but I'm not sure that the Russian government has been directly engaged. Uh In this Ukrainian story I don't think they has the capacity o or the interest directly however definitely you. The Russian propaganda will make and is already making full use of this story and definitely it ties To to turn the public attention away from the alleged Russian interference into elections of twenty sixteen in the United States. You say alleged edged. Do you feel that That in Russia people think there was no Russian information campaign information war in two thousand sixteen. Because you know most it's not just the United States. Most Western into intelligence agencies believe it happened most independent observers. Believe it happened. Well I I think that there is the official narrative in Moscow We never interfered. Whenever do we will never do but There is Sir footnote to that and in small print. You can read the that basically everybody interferes everybody US Information Information Wars In this world of Pasta. Everybody distorts facts or at least puts accents in the soap no way so basically if everybody is guilty no one is guilty. I think this is. It's the hidden narrative that you can find here in Moscow in his annual press conference President Putin was asked. What would he do to try and fix the relations with the United States and he said if we need pessimistic? He didn't think there was much that could be done. I agree and actually I heard Mr Putin in making His speech club annual meeting. And he said that he has said that their election campaign in the United States is is not the best time to try fixing their relationship and essentially everything that we could have proposed. We already the proposed all our ideas all our proposals on the table so itself. It's now up to Americans to decide whether they're ready to go for any of them I think that basically in Russia They're so used to to cemetery as the only mechanism that Can fix this relationship. It has always been this way since The early days of the Cold War The two leaders had the chance to get together They were able to agree on something. And then they set into motion this big bureaucratic mechanisms on both sides. But it didn't work with Tom Aw Putin met Tom per in Helsinki I and after the summit to delay the summit meetings relationship didn't get any better. It got really worse so so I think that right now there is a kind of confusing of what we can do on top of what we have already done in order to fix this relationship I I think there are a lot of the world is confused about how to deal with President trump. Ben It's fascinating to hear that The feeling is true even in Moscow. I I would say so. I think that they might like president trump but they understand that he's very constrained in what we heard key can do towards Moscow. Moscow remains the toxic assets for Tom at this situation is likely to change. Even if trump gets elected under a pleasure as you to have you on it's always always so interesting to hear your perspective. Thank you read up next.

GOTO ECONOMISTS DOT com slash radio radio offer to get your first twelve issues for twelve dollars or twelve pounds. I up the promise and the perils of impeachment. America almost didn't have the president. The men who arrived at the constitutional convention in seventeen eighty seven brought with them. I'm a horror of monarchy absent. A figure of George Washington stature the country might have adopted a parliamentary system of government yet. He's having created the office. The founders had to devise a way to remove presidents who abuse their positions. Not all people are Washington's. They defined the mechanism an impeachment vote in the house followed by a trial in the Senate the question of what exactly the president should be impeached for treason bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors was deliberately left to Congress hence though impeachment is a constitutional national provisions. It is also a political campaign. That campaign began in earnest this week when Nancy Pelosi directed her democratic colleagues in the house else to begin impeachment hearings into President Donald Trump. This will not necessarily lead to impeachment in the past though impeachment impeachment hearings have generated a momentum of their own the processes fraught with risks on both sides. One thing seems certain the process this will further divide a country. It is already set against itself. Miss Pelosi has taken such a momentous step because she believes the president's behavior towards Ukraine's government cross the line. If that seems an obscure reason to contemplate unseating president remember that impeachment proceedings against Richard Nixon had their origins in an office burglary and the ones against Bill Clinton began with an affair with an intern. Mr Trump appears to let Ukraine's government know that relations with America including the supply of aid depended on its pursuing an investigation into the family of a political tickle rival that would be more serious than a break in or a fling it would mean that the president had subverted the national interest to pursue you political vendetta. The federal government often gives foreign powers promises of aid in exchange for doing something that America wants them to do. Ukraine case is different. America has an interest in ensuring that Ukraine is able to defend itself against Russian aggression which is why Congress Chris came up with a package of three hundred ninety one million dollars in military aid for its newly elected government. Mr Trump acted against the national interest in in putting that aid on hold while pressing Vladimir's Alinsky Ukraine's president to investigate Hunter Biden who had business dealings in Ukraine and is the son of the Democratic Front runner Joe Biden. If that were not clear enough Mr Trump also sent his personal lawyer to meet an advisor adviser to Mr Zilenski and repeat the message in a country is corrupt and vulnerable as Ukraine the link between American support what and investigating the Biden's you give a start on Joe and we'll give you weapons and money did not need to be explicit to be understood. I also want to ensure you that we will be very serious about the case and we'll work on the investigation. Mr Lansky told Mr Trump in a call on July I twenty fifth you might have the Muller investigation into his campaigns. DEALINGS WITH RUSSIA WOULD HAVE MADE MR trump wary of dallying with foreign governments. It seems not is conduct looks a lot like bribery or extortion unto US taxpayer funds and the might the American state to pursue political enemy would count as an abuse of power. The founders wanted impeachment to be a practical option. It's not just a theoretical one otherwise the president would be above the law a monarch sitting on a throne for four or eight years declining to impeach speech. Mr Trump would set a precedent for future presidents anything up to and including. What's the forty fifth president has done to date would be fair game mm? Republican partisans should consider to what deaths a future Democratic president thus emboldened could stoop it would also signal all to America's allies and foes that snooping on Americans who are influential law might become so was a foreign way to curry favor with the president there would be no need for the dirt even to be true Russia and China. Are you listening such the risks of docking impeachment yet the risks on the other side of of pressing forward a great to voters expect impeachment to be a last resort. I'll trick by one party to remove a president from the other aw or a means for the losers of an election to frustrate its result. House Democrats Risk Looking self-indulgent as rather than getting seeing on with fixing infrastructure or healthcare they obsess over the MINUTIAE of internal White House communications the hearings may spin out control and make democratic politicians seem ineffectual and obsessive as the stonewalling testimony of a former Trumpet Corey Lewin Douse Ki Did last tweak the hearings may also be too confusing and rankers for the public to follow even if the House did decide to impeach Mr trump it it is highly unlikely that he would be found guilty by the two thirds majority needed in the Senate where Republicans hold fifty three of one hundred seats legally Mr Biden Juniors sleazy dealings in Ukraine have no bearing on whether Mr Trump abused his office politically though the two are linked because they give Republican senators minded to defend Mr trump a handy set of talking points a failed impeachment mint leaves Mr Trump in office. Why not be much of a deterrent to this president or to a future one in fact it might even help Mr Trump who could argue that he had been found found innocent after a partisan witch hunt by loser Democrats until this week that was the Calculus Miss Pelosi and House Democrats from competitive tip districts. It is not clear that public opinion has yet shifted enough to change the equation though it may be bravado. Mr Trump's campaign team team has always insisted that the more Democrats talk about impeachment the better it is for the president's chances of reelection in twenty twenty faced with such a daunting choice must Pelosi had until now held back but Mr trump appears to be becoming more brazenness re election draws near the president's behavior needs investigating with the extra authority that the impeachment process confers better therefore to lean towards principal than pragmatism but it is a risky and perilous path the the light bulb the whatever you call it that one moment is sometimes all it takes to begin something great. That's the focus of that made all the difference a new podcast cast from Bank of America join me a leash burke as I talked to achievers from filmmakers to entrepreneurs about the defining moments that inspired them to make an impact and their stories might just inspire you to what would you like the power to do.

"Much of Donald Trump's tenure as president has been marked by slow motion drip feed scandals allegation denial investigation and then a slow fade eight from the news of the controversy surrounding his phone call with Ukraine's president thought Amir's Alinsky is unfolding a PAC- thriller today the Acting Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire will be grilled about a whistle blowers report of the call for months. Talk of impeachment hasn't risen above above a murmur this week House Speaker Nancy Pelosi at a change of heart. I'm announcing the House of Representatives moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry. Glad the president must be held accountable. No one is above the law. Mr Trump has admitted that he spoke to his Ukrainian counterpart about investigating Joe Biden his probable rival in next year's election. The question now is whether the president used hundreds of millions of dollars in military aid as leverage to get his bidding done. A majority of the House seems to think so in the Senate so does top Democrat Chuck Schumer. Do any of my Republican colleagues think this phone call reflects the president pursuing the national interest or was he pursuing his own political ambitions every Republican. Everyone needs to answer this question. More detail lies within the whistle blowers report of the call which may yet be he made public so far only congressional intelligence committees have seen it but there's plenty to chew on even in the account that the White House released yesterday this. This isn't a verbatim transcript. It's a account of the call that was made by an intelligence officer whose job it is to listen into communications between the president and form. Nita's jump radio is a United States senator but it shows fairly clearly the president donald trump badgering the newly elected president of Ukraine Vladimir's Alinsky for his help in getting hold of damaging material on the Biden Family Hunter Biden who had business interests in Ukraine and his father Joe Biden who at the moment is the front runner in the Democratic primary president trump also urges Mr Lansky to have a word with his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani and also with the Attorney General Bill Baugh towards that attend which is unusual to say the least and the controversy around this has a lot to do with the potential for there being some leverage by Mr Trump. Just that's right. The main gene form of leverage it appears is military aid so just to back up a little bit. Ukraine vulnerable country invaded by Russia trying to put itself back together. I alive America. America has an interest in Ukraine being sort of stable and able to fend off the Russian Aggression Congress appropriated money in the form of military aid for Ukraine the White House then put a hold on it unexpectedly with no explanation for the Ukrainian government and more or less the same time president trump speaking to the president of Ukraine Vladimir landscaping urging him to investigate the Biden and so many people two and two together but in the account of the cool does no explicit mention of the quip record this where Donald Trump says you know if you do this for me then. I'll make you got the eight okay. Let's just consider the facts that are out there there at the moment and and agreed upon what is the best possible light that all of this could be cast in people who are defending the president what fits the evidence that exonerates the president of the most best-case case defense he has is to say. I was merely pressuring a foreign government to look into corruption allegations. That's the sort of thing that America does all the time nothing unusual about that. I didn't offer him aid in exchange for Doug on a political rival and the worst possible possible light that lines up with the evidence we have the worst possible light is that the president used public funds appropriated by Congress to extort material from a foreign government that would help him in his campaign so with the release of the transcript then and heightening volume of of this discussion Russian what Mr Trump and Mr Linski said yesterday President Trump ski actually had a press conference together at the UN. Did we had I think good phone call. It was normal. We spoke about many things and so I think you you are added that. Nobody Push Bush me. Yes No. I said that president trump didn't place any pressure on presidents scheme but that's not the case. If you read the accounts of the cool a lot more light could be shed on this by the the whistle blowers report which still hasn't been seen by the public but it has been seen by a few lawmakers when will more emerge what happens next. There's a possibility that the whistle blows reporters declassified and we'll get to see it sure to that I'm Maguire's Jews testify later today. He'll be pressed on Watson the whistle blows report by members of Congress and mentioned he will stonewalled on that but he may give give some details and then members of Congress will also be asking him about the circumstances surrounding his appointment. There's something strange the timing there as well Jason in the previous Director of National Intelligence Dan Codes left his post shortly after this call between trump and Celeski and even on the basis of what is known already. This has already sparked an impeachment inquiry. How do you think that's going to play out well. Democrats are saying they don't want it to drag on forever at likewise be done by Christmas at that point when it's finished they may or may not drop articles of impeachment as a dispute within the party whether such articles in theory ought to be narrowly focused on Ukraine France story or broader taking some older allegations around obstruction of justice and abuse of power and so forth then if the house decides to go ahead and impeach age the trial then moves to the Senate way. You'd need a two thirds majority to convict the president that is extremely likely I think at the moment unless something comes out. That's the more damaging than what we know already. It's just really hard to see twenty. Republicans voting against a sitting Republican president that we were just talking working two days ago about the the likelihood that this would go to impeachment as you know this question has arisen several times over the course of the administration and your view then was it it wouldn't essentially because of political calculus and no other reason that it simply wouldn't come up. Why do you think what's happened. Here has has changed that Calculus. Yes you'll write. Thanks shifted almost overnight and I'm afraid I didn't spot it coming in advance apologized to listeners for that but essentially for the past year or more the left flank of the the Democratic Caucus in the House has been saying Nancy Pelosi. We must impeach him impeach the majority of the Caucasus particularly those Democrats in more marginal districts have said absolutely not it's killers when we come up re-election. You know the folk wisdom in. DC is a failed impeachment which I mean impeachment in the House and not removing the president in the Senate you know helps the president and damages the impeaches dot was the settled view of Nancy Pelosi House leadership what happened that seems to have changed inch that. Is that some of those Democrats in close constituencies came to close. Actually we've changed online on this. We think what happened. Here has crossed the line. We've got a constitutional duty to uphold and asking as ever that you get your crystal ball out that kind of realization that notion of a constitutional duty that the notion of a threshold beyond which things become much more moral question than a political one. You don't think that might happen in the Senate well American Politics Success being so unpredictable releasing twenty fifteen the beginning of the Republican primary the I've got out of the habit of saying it'll never happen. I think it's unlikely but but say there's a small possibility that you might get a decent number of Republicans changing their mind because Republicans senators on large character deal about national security. They understand Dan what's at stake in Ukraine understand that America has a national interest and when the AIDS was frozen by the White House in the first place. I'm told the the White House got a lot of calls from angry. Republicans saying one earth is happening here. You know what he doing so it's possible. I think it's unlikely John. Thank you very much a few time. Thanks Jason.

Ukraine president's party leads ahead of parliamentary vote

"In April laniers Alinsky swept victory in Ukraine's presidential election it was a curious case of life imitating art misters Alinsky was the comedic star of show called Servant of the people I mean which depicted a regular guy swept into the presidency with a message of change once in power misters Alinsky wasted no time guy over what's going on in his inaugural speech. He said he would dissolve parliament and hold early elections. The vote will take place on Sunday on the ballot. This time is Mr Zielinski. Namesake Servant of the People party polls suggest it'll make a strong showing he needs it too if he's going to make good on his promises to Ukrainians frustrated with the old guard some of that old guard must be voted out of parliament in the Ukrainian system. The president has limited powers. I Know Snyder covers Ukraine economist most of the governing hours belong to parliament and government formed. I coalition in parliament so despite his victory presidents Alinsky has had pretty limited room for maneuver. He's been saddled with essentially okay the par Shankar government his efforts to make progress in terms of lawmaking have been stifled and so he's been restricted to sort of symbolic steps and I think he wants to take the real lovers of power but I mean can he what what sort of political influence dizzy hat I mean I I understand. He's a good sort of figure for people to focus on but do you think he can gather the political will he needs so if the polls are it'd be believed his party serving of the people is polling somewhere between forty and fifty percent some even in thinking might be able to gather pure majority regardless of whether they crossed the fifty percent threshold or not hill likely have the largest block in parliament and the dominant position in whichever coalition he chooses to form and in part it is a reflection of what people have seen in him so far he's made a series of sort of symbolic steps things like canceling a military parade and instead paying bonuses to servicemembers reducing the number of the presidential staff announcing plans as he had promised during the campaign to move the presidential administration from its old imposing Soviet headquarters. These are things that have signaled to voters that he's serious about change and so far Ukrainians are choosing to believe but I mean the single biggest thing they went to believe is that undue influence on the government by all the guards and the like will go away I mean does he presented credible chance of that exactly and this is the rub as always in Ukraine where the political system is under the grip of oligarchs. Mr Lansky has faced questions about his ties to one oligarchy in particular eager Colombo ski who was the owner of the T._v.. Channel on which Mr Leonides comedy shows ran in recent years when you take a look at the list of candidates for his party it seems to be a real l. sort of grab bag of genuine young reformers and political novices looking to make a mark for the first time old friends and associates from his previous life as an actor and folks with some questionable ties including two oligarchs so the parliamentary list is in some ways manifestation of Lewinsky's desire to be everything to everyone and the question will be if Mr Zelinski does manage to gather a parliamentary coalition and form government. What kinds of laws will start to push firsthand? How directly will he challenged the oligarchy interests? It's still largely controlled Ukraine. So what exactly is he planning to do to address those concerns. His policy platform has been quite heavy on things like introducing more what he calls snug avoided avoided direct democracy decentralizing if you will more power to the people removing immunity from deputies M._p.'s parliament so some somewhat populist moves like that the question of sort of economic policies policies a bit fuzzier. He's promised to continue with the steps required under an i._M._F.. Loan program it's helping to prop up Ukraine's economy even to this day. He's promised to pursue tough anti corruption measures but his legislative agenda. We'll really come into focus. Once parliament forums it is a bit of a smorgasbord something for everyone and it seems to be working as intellectual strategy well working at least as the polls are concerned anyway. What do you think he intends to do regarding relations? Into Russia and the conflict in eastern Ukraine this is another obviously major if not the major issue for Lansky and for his presidency he's taken a different approach in certain important ways to par Shaneco are Sankoh pursuit of very a outright ethno nationalist even approach to the conflict Zilenski has been more willing to talk about and pursue building ties with the people not necessarily the leadership of but the people stuck in the Russian controlled controlled separatist territories in eastern Ukraine. He's been more flexible about the use of language switching freely between Russian and Ukrainian Russian being spoken more commonly in the east of the country and he's already engaged in some direct diplomacy even with Putin himself. There's a potential prisoner exchange in the works and that would be certainly a signal of positive movement and perhaps assign that the two leaders are engaged in a more constructive dialogue than in the past but at the same time Lansky will have to fight off horses domestically who will accuse him of being too nice as it were to folks in the east of getting to engaged with Putin and that will present challenge for him going forward and so all told what chances do you give him move overturning public opinion of reading the government of undue influence of stabilizing the economy of normalizing relations with Russia. What what odds do you give success in terms of the symbolism? He's already had some big successes his figure his person in in and of itself represents a new Ukraine a post Soviet generation or generation that didn't make its name and it's money in the murky division of assets after the fall of the Soviet Union the Ukrainian populace at large already beginning to have a more rosy outlook about the future about the direction of the country the downside is that if he can't fill that shiny new form with the content of governance that could be real disillusionment and he'll be up against deeply entrenched interests and forces throughout out the bureaucracy throughout the economy throughout the state know how to run this system and how to work this system much better than the former comedian turned resident.

What kind of president would Ukraine's comedian candidate make?

"Floods. Alinsky a TV comedy actor pays to be on coast. Unseat president petro Porsche Schenker in the second round of Ukraine's presidential elections this weekend Casey Martin discusses how he got there. And what kind of president he would make Roman audio audiology. Glue. We've just had a clip from a campaign video of Mr. landscape taking selfish with his team what kind of character does he play on TV, and how did he go from acting into politics? Let me start off by saying that Mr. Zielinski is a very funny and talented comedian who strikes the basic emotional courts with average Ukrainians, and I think it's very important to put this into context the country is into a six year of war in far eastern regions where Russian backed separatists, and it's gone through a lot of economic pain during these past years and his performances, including his comedy performances where he mocks politicians is sort of escape a release for the population. That has a lot of anger on various issues from lingering corruption to the economic pain. They're feeling in his popular TV series called servants of the people where he plays a honest schoolteacher who becomes president unexpectedly. He plays a. Character who combat's the oligarchy, it's a very popular widely watched TV show in the country, and it presents sort of the ideal president that the people would like to see in contrast. The current president who has a patchy reform record is an oligarchy himself and in the TV series of until the people. There are episodes, for example, where Mr. Dolinsky playing the role of this on a schoolteacher walks into parliament and imagine himself with automatic guns shooting in killing all the politicians in such scenes are scenes that many Ukrainians who are fed up with corruption. I'm sure would like to see perhaps maybe not in real life. But they would like to see someone who comes into power that really changes the way the system here works. I mean, he's clearly struck a code. But how did he make that transition into real politics in real life? He hasn't made a transition to a sort of a conventional Ukrainian politician Ukrainian still to this day. See him as the character in the TV show. They haven't really seen the real Mr. Lansky in neither have Ukraine's western backers nor even journalists because he hasn't really given a lot of face to face interviews. In depth interviews. He hasn't appeared on the streets doing traditional campaign rallies. And so you cranium seeing him often what they want to see is sort of character, who is honest who is just an average person who is fed up with the system in wants to change it, and that's really the unorthodox campaign that he's run his campaign is focused largely on two fronts mobilizing the youth. Electorate the young generation who see him as one of their own and he targeted them specifically through social media. Meanwhile, we have the television series, which a lot of elderly Ukrainians watch. Is he young and south Hello to say he's forty one years of age. So he basically grew up in independent Ukraine and is not Butte as the same as the current political stablishment. Who are all Soviet born and developed this people partially in the Soviet Union. And during the crony nineteen ninety s where a handful of individuals, amass massive amounts of wealth. So he's viewed as this anti-establishment figure by population which desperately wants big changes and a change from the current establishment with fresh faces. Recent polls have shown that sixty or perhaps more percentage of the population. Want a new face as president and new faces in parliaments a complete overhaul politically service really isn't extraordinary situation, a new sort of campaign, but what his policies how do they differ from his opponent? Petra parish Anka, you're right. It's a very surreal situation in many respects, and it's just astonishing. How popular he's become in a very short period of time since declaring his bid for the presidency on New Year's Eve, which was just several months ago. But in reality, we don't really. We know who he really is in what kind of policies he would bring in how different they would be from portion goes because he has been very short on detail. He is avoided as I've said in depth interviews on foreign policy domestic policy giving very general statements in many ways, the general statements that he's given since a group of several former fficials had joined him as advisors have been along the lines of the current objectively that Ukraine is going on in terms of foreign and domestic policy, which means sticking with the IMF program and with the western-backed support, countering Russian its aggression. So what are the achievements and shortcomings of Mr. putter Shankar as president has he done thing to tackle the corruption that seems to be the biggest concern in seems to be fueling so much enthusiasm for Mr. landscape. Let's remember that Mr. Persian go took power when he was elected with fifty four percent mandate. Just a couple of months after the my Don revolution sent a pro Russian president. Fleeing to Russia and Russia at that time after the revolution. Swiftly annexed Crimea and fomented a war in the far eastern regions of the country since taking over Persian go has rebuilt the army, which was caught flat-footed in the early days of the war under his leadership. That government has achieved. A macro economic stability creating the foundations for a healthier economy across the board. There have been significant reforms in removing the room for corruption in rent-seeking in various sectors of economy, including bringing market level prices to utilities and independence to the central Bank. However, the major shortcoming of Mr. partial go, his political achilles heel has been his foot-dragging on reforms that are needed to punish corruption in forming. A functioning court system to give a little bit of context the court systems in this country. Have traditionally been used by presidents and other top officials as a form of leverage over other politicians. They have not been independent. So it sounds like fuse. Yeltsin for his campaign is rather low for Mr. portion goes, yes, it's been rather low. However, he has made a remarkable comeback though. His chances of reelection seem distant his poll numbers about a year ago were in single digits in the first round of elections on March thirty first he came in second behind Mr. Zilenski, he mustered about thirteen percent support that is a significant increase from the single digit numbers that he had prior to that said gang back to MRs van ski his career has been backed by another oligarchy lives in exile. But owns the TV channel that screens his shows. Tell us about eager Cowboys we ski and why he had to leave Ukraine. Yes eager. Komo's ski is. A very interesting character we had to find out your times interviewed him a couple years back. He was camera shy for many decades, but came out into the open of Ukrainian politics after Russia annexed Crimea. He accepted the job as governor of a region that borders the Br. Takeaway regions in eastern Ukraine that Russian-backed forces in separatists took control over he played a big role in repelling further incursions into the country, and we interviewed him shortly after that and found him to be in some ways of very candid figure, but impulsive and obsessive in clearly one who seeks influence, and he had a big grudge against portion cone, those days what we've seen is that Mr Hallam Whiskas channels have been giving a great amount of airtime to misters Alinsky and his TV series in particular, and this has increased support for misters Alinsky. We also see. There are reports that lawyers that we met in the presence of Mr. Colin Moise are playing a sort of backroom role in advising, Mr. linski. There are reports that bodyguards of Mr. cola Moise have been hired by mister is Alinsky to protect him and other evidence of links. So there is a lot of concern that Mr. linski could be a puppet of Mr. cola Moise as Mr Puerta shaneco claim. Tmz Mr. Zielinski, however has denied this and promises that don't be no special treatment for Mr. cola Moise, who by the way promises to return to Ukraine from Israel where he's in exile, currently after the elections. So he may have some practical backing from Khulumani scape. But if we'd have situation where for example, he wins what sort of policy input. Does he have what kind of backing does he have in that sense much of what we know about Mr. Alinsky is potential policies going forward? Come from a group of former government ministers in officials that have become his advisors. They include the respected former foreign minister of Ukraine Oleksandr done. Luke who was a key official in relations with the IMF. And a former economy minister deliver wanian born Ibarra Abramova choose those two along with another individual who's advising him are saying that the policies will be consistent with the IMF program. And that Ukraine will remain on a pro. Western course, however. What really will happen under his presidency remains a bit of a question because he has not formally announced who will be members of his team who will hold what positions in the government and doubts are big. Because in some of the first comments that misters Alinsky gave to the media after announcing his campaign. He said a lot of things that raised eyebrows. For example, he described IMF loans as to expensive when they are actually some of the cheapest sources of financing that Ukraine can get nowadays. So what's at stake here for Ukraine? Why did he's elections matter? There's an awful lot at stake here for Ukraine Ukraine is on the front lines of Russia's broader war with the west which started in two thousand fourteen with the annexation of Crimea. There's also an awful lot of steak for the west here unpredictable leadership in Ukraine unclear governing could complicate Ukraine's relations with western backers including the multibillion dollar loans that are needed from the IMF their key to propping up this country as it faces. P conformed debt payments this next year. So there's a lot at stake for bondholders in Ukrainian debt, for example, questions about Ukraine's leadership under misters Alinsky. And no one knows very much what to expect for him could also test the transatlantic unity behind Ukraine and Russia sanctions over Moscow's, continued aggression in Ukraine, a vacuum of power in Ukraine, should it occur under his Alinsky leadership or more infighting could also lead to instability that could make the country more vulnerable to further Russian aggression. And let's remember that Russia really seize the moment, tactically annexing, Crimea and formenting a war in eastern regions in the post revolution period of Ukraine in two thousand fourteen when there was no strong vertical of power. So high stakes in a very unpredictable situation. Remers thanks very much. Thank you.

Comics relief? Ukraines presidential race

"In the hit Ukrainian comedy show. Servant of the people. I history teachers, expletive strewn anti corruption rant goes viral. And this man of the people winds up being elected president. But throw which but there's some fifteen. The comedian who plays him load. Amir's Alinsky is trying to turn fiction into reality voters head to the polls on Sunday for the first round of Ukraine's presidential elections and not only Mr. linski in the race. He's the front runner. Five years ago. Ukrainians took to the streets that overthrew their former president Viktor Yanukovych since then they faced a simmering war in the east of their country with Russia, which also annexed the Crimean peninsula. Noah Sneider is our Moscow correspondent, he recently visited Mr. Lansky onset in Kiev. They've seen their economy crash and come back from the brink. And they've seen many of the promises of the revolution unfulfilled, especially when it comes to fighting corruption that's opened a huge Gulf of distrust with the authorities and that has led to a strange situation where the front runner in. These elections is a comedian an actor with no political experience whatsoever riding this wave of anti-establishment sentiment and frustration towards a likely victory. And I understand that you you met Mr. linski recently. I did. So I went and saw him onset where he was filming latest season of his TV show serving the people. And the scene that was playing out was telling it showed the Lansky character taking the oath of office. He enters a sort of historical flashback a dialogue with a trio of important figures. Plato prince flood of Kiev, and the Slavic philosopher Grigory Scotto, the, and what ensues is sort of philosophical dialogue on the nature of power. And this, of course, has a double meaning since he may be taking that oath right soon. And so when you met him after he was filming how did he come across? Mr. charming mound. And actor who knows how to hold the room. But at the same time, he's had a hard time being very specific. At all about what he plans to do. Once he becomes president in part. It's a need campaign strategy it allows voters to see him as an empty vessel that they can fill with their hopes will what about his own hopes. Did he speak to you about why he wants to run for office? He talked about wanting to change things about wanting to make the country better. He came around eventually to answer that he summed up as I want my kids to be able to say that my dad was a normal guy. Great guy and these motivations for many voters raise questions because of his somewhat. Murky ties with color mois key, the guard who owns the TV channel on which Mr. Lansky show has aired the to maintain that they're not in cahoots and that there's nothing to their relationship beyond the business one. But missed his Lansky vague answers have fueled the suspicions about why he actually has decided to run then without prejudice to wear his platform might be coming from. What is he actually said he'll do first and foremost, he's promised to maintain Ukraine's course, towards western integration integration with the European Union. He's talked about fighting corruption and somewhat vaguely about ending the war about finding away to negotiate with mister Putin at the same time. His ideological stance is. Quite over the map, we talked to him about which world leaders, he admired which figures he associated himself with global politics, and he invoked to names in particular day able scenario the right wing populace, president of Brazil. And France's among well Macron. Mccall who's liberal technocrat the Gulf between their policies and their positions is enormous. And again, perhaps suggests that Mr. Lonski is is a bit unfamiliar with the territory he's wandering onto. And I guess that's particularly worrisome in the sense that he's up against a ladder Putin for a chunk of his country. Absolutely. Mr Putin has nineteen years of executive experience under his belt. He's a wily operator and will not miss the opportunity to use his opponent's inexperience to his advantage, and how did Mr. linski and up here. How comedian with no political experience leading the polls. I think the main reason is frustration frustration amongst ordinary Ukrainians with their post revolutionary leadership when they overthrew the previous president victory on the kovic in two thousand fourteen. There was a great deal of hope that the deeply corrupt. Oligarchy political system that has gripped Ukraine since the fall of the Soviet Union would finally change and that fundamental promise has been left unfulfilled. So although Ukraine has made some important reforms, although the country is moving closer to Europe citizens now enjoy visa-free travel to the U, for example. They don't feel like the system has fundamentally changed three quarters of Ukrainian say the country is headed in the wrong direction. Just nine percent have faith in their national government. That's the lowest figure of any country survey by Gallup polling agency. And you see that frustration spill out onto the streets quite regularly. They're anti corruption protests in Kiev in the same place often has where the revolution in two thousand fourteen began. And so who is Mr. linski running against are there more. Let's call them standard candidates. There's nearly forty candidates running for president. But the front runners are a pair of old faces from the old guard. There's the incumbent president petro parsh- Anco who came to office in two thousand fourteen in the wake the revolution promising to root out corruption and change this old system people largely feel that he's failed to do. So the second major challenger to mister Lonski is Hewlett Michenko. She's a former prime minister came to prominence after the orange revolution two thousand four and she's reinvented herself this time around as populous. Okay. So you've got two establishment candidates and one wildcard does that look like it's going to be a fair fight at least at the polls. That's big question. And it's the thing that people are most worried about in key, if these days, there are not only fears about the influence of oligarchy television. But also. Hello fears about straight up vote, rigging and vote-buying and vast majority of Ukrainians, in fact, don't believe that these will be free and fair elections, and that could be the most dangerous outcome of all. But let's suppose things are relatively clear cut and Mr. Dolinsky gets through the first round as expected. What do you reckon happens? Then the polling shows the in most cases, he would win head to head matchup with Mr. partial go and with Mr. machine go, but a lot of it depends on things like voter turnout misters Lonski basis, younger less reliable. So it's really hard to say. And if he were to win in the second round and become president he'd inherit the simmering war with Russia, which has massive implications for relations between Russia and the west he would inherit an economy that still struggling could benefit from further reform, and he would face a brutal fight over parliamentary elections in the fall.
