Rising Tension In Ukraine

Listen in pop-out player

Tension escalates further in Ukraine, as the defence minister describes the conflict as the worst Europe has seen 'since the Second World War'. As NATO officials consider creating a rapid reaction force, we hear from Ivo Daalder, former US ambassador to NATO. Scientists say we'll have to eat less meat to drive down greenhouse gas emissions - for instance, a single cow belches up to 500 litres of methane gas every day. Will the experts be able to persuade us to take meat off the menu? Later this month when Sweden goes to the polls, an anti-immigration party is likely to score its best ever general election result - will this lead to a change in their open door asylum policy? We hear about an online scandal involving naked celebrity photos and our correspondent Jonah Fisher joins us from Burma to discuss another scandal - the beauty queen who ran off with her crown. Our guests are Yuka Hayashi, Tokyo correspondent for the Wall Street Journal, and Ralph Silva of Silva Research Network joins us from Toronto.
