    We start this week off by explaining the significance of the former Chadian leader Hissene Habre’s conviction for crimes against humanity.

    Next up we discuss the “Savchenko effect”, or how the swapped Ukrainian prisoner is shaking up her country’s politics. Coming up after that is some insight on the Eurasian Union’s international trade agreements and the recent decision to launch talks with Serbia. The following topic that we address is the Iran-Ukraine gas talks and what they mean for the future of Russian gas supplies to Eastern Europe. Finally, we wrap everything up by analyzing the multibillion-dollar cobalt deal that was just signed China and the Congo and how it’s slated to make Beijing the undisputed global leader in electric car technology.
