The France 24 Debate in Moscow

Latest update : 2014-05-21

Three days before the Ukrainian presidential election, France 24 is in Moscow for two special broadcasts of The Debate, in English and in French.

As uncertainty and instability reign in eastern Ukraine, what is the exact role of Russia in the crisis? How do the Russian government and public opinion foresee this election? Will the Ukrainian presidential election resolve the conflict or will it worsen the situation?

François Picard (in English) [@FrancoisF24] and Vanessa Burggraf (in French) [@VanessaBurggraf] and their respective guests will spend an hour analyzing the unfolding situation and sharing different viewpoints.

TV viewers and web users can also comment on social networks via dedicated hashtags in French and English: #F24Debate and #DébatF24


Thursday May 22nd at 7:10pm (Paris time) / 9:10pm (Moscow time)

On both France 24 English and French channels
