    The accusations that the buddies of Brazilian frontrunner Bolsonaro are illegally funding an election meddling campaign on social media have shook the country’s democracy to the core but are unlikely to have any real impact on the second round this weekend.

    We start off this week's show by talking about why the UK banned the term "fake news" in its official documents. Then we analyze how India's poised to take advantage of the US-Chinese "trade war". After that, we explain how and why China's challenging the US in Central America. Once that's done, the next topic on our countdown is the implications of Germany suspending arms exports to the Saudis over Khashoggi's killing. And finally, our top story of the week is the accusations that the buddies of Brazilian frontrunner Bolsonaro are illegally funding an election meddling campaign on social media.

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