    Our program begins by explaining what Polish politician meant when he accused the EU of “Euroracism”.

    Then we talk about how a warlord in the Eastern Congo wants to unify his country's anti-government fighting forces. Afterwards, we take a look at the Russian-Saudi partnership and the decision to create a $1 billion joint energy fund. Once that's done, we analyze why Kyrgyzstan arrested an opposition politician for supposedly planning riotous unrest, and what the proposed Russian military base in the Fergana Valley has to do with it all. And finally, our top story of the week is the viral fake news report that China is suppressing Muslims in Xinjiang.

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