Newt’s World – Episode 377: Understanding Putin

Newt gives his take on Vladimir Putin’s fiery February 21st speech in which he makes the case for why Ukraine should be part of Russia again.

The Munich Agreement was signed in September 1938 by Germany, the United Kingdom, France and Italy and permitted the German annexation of the Sudetenland, in western Czechoslovakia.  Newt compares this time in history with Putin annexing Crimea and other areas of eastern Ukraine.  In Putin’s February 21st speech, he signals the rationale for a Russian invasion of Ukraine.
