    We start off this week's show by analyzing the failed UN proposal which sought to have the Syrian government agree to “autonomy” for the terrorist stronghold in East Aleppo.

    Then we move along to discussing Turkish President Erdogan's headline-grabbing talk about replacing the EU with the SCO. That's followed by some words about the ultra-controversial proposal that Serbia is considering which would criminalize "genocide" denial. Afterward, we address Facebook’s vow to crack down on "fake news" and the consequences that this can have for new and alternative media. Last but not least, our top story of the week is the announcement that Moscow will host the first-ever trilateral gathering next month between Russia, China, and Pakistan aimed at finally resolving the War on Afghanistan.

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