Russia's war on Ukraine has continued to intensify in recent weeks, as the Kremlin has recently launched the most missiles within a single week of the war so far.

It’s unconfirmed where these strikes came from, as European Correspondent Cameron Adams reports as a part of this weeks Eurovision segment. 

Him and Liam also chatted about the European Commission  calling for the incorporation of three new member states into 3 more member states to the Schengen area, and a new deal between France and England to control asylum seekers travelling across the English channel.

This criticism interestingly breaks with tradition as these appointments are generally not politicised, indicating another area where the impacts of Covid have disrupted political processes.

For their regular interview, Casper spoke to National MP Dr Shane Reti about this appointment, why National has been speaking out against it, and what this says about the political independance of the RBNZ governor going forward.
