Global Eyes: Does war in Ukraine make your chapati cheaper?

Matthias von Hein
November 26, 2022

Welcome to DW's podcast Global Eyes — a new take on security policy. In our first episode we discuss the effects of Russia's war in Ukraine on the lives of people in India. Hosts Isha Bhatia and Kate Brady are joined by Seema Sirohi, columnist for the Economic Times and energy expert Nandikesh Sivalingam.


In this very first episode of DW's new podcast "Global Eyes," hosts Isha Bhatia and Kate Brady are exploring India's relations with Russia, while also touching on those with the US and China. India has avoided condemning Russia's invasion in Ukraine in the UN General Assembly. And at a time when other countries are reducing their energy imports from Russia, India has increased them, taking advantage of a sanctions-related discount in Russian oil sales. Energy expert Nandikesh Sivalingam and foreign policy expert Seema Sirohi help to put things in perspective, with surprising results.
