    Our show starts off by talking about how a UK bank shut down RT’s accounts and why this is being seen as an attack against the free press.

    We then switch over to discussing the joint Russian-Egyptian war games and the speculative talk that Moscow could even open up a military facility in the strategic North African nation.

    Once that’s done, we move along to Thailand and discuss what the passing of King Bhumibol Adulyadej means for the Southeast Asian nation.

    As our second last story of the week, we analyze the significance of the Montenegrin parliamentary elections and how they, in fact, disprove Djukanovic’s controversial claim that the majority of the country wants NATO membership.

    And finally, we’ve got the outcome of the BRICS Summit in Goa, which was a godsend for Russian-Indian relations but comparatively disappointing when it came to new opportunities for multilateral cooperation.

    We'd love to get your feedback at Radio@sputniknews.com
