Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky has called on Russia to withdraw from the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power station, and warned of the disastrous consequences for Europe of any radiation incident at the plant. But why was Russia so keen to take the plant in the first place? Alix Kroeger in London joins Emily Tamkin and Katie Stallard in Washington DC to discuss.

Plus, as another US congressional delegation visits Taiwan, Katie Stallard analyses how China’s military exercises could signal the beginning a new normal in the Taiwan Strait and why US-China relations are so bad.
