THE WORLD THIS WEEK

Our panel of Paris-based journalists review the week’s international news: the stories that made the headlines and also those you may have missed! Join us every Friday at 7.10 pm Paris time.

Latest update : 2013-12-20

The World this Week – 20 December 2013

Vladimir Putin is making headlines once again. He’s just pardoned the most famous prisoner in the country Mikhail Kohdorkovski, once the richest man in Russia. After 10 years in a labour camp in Siberia, he's been released and has now left for Germany. So, is this a warm display of clemency from the Russian President, or a cynical attempt to appease the international community ahead of the Sotchi Olympic games?

Produced and prepared by Anelise Borges, Haxie Meyers-Belkin and Christohper Davis
