Amanpour is CNN International's flagship global affairs interview program hosted by Chief International Correspondent Christiane Amanpour.
n a historic change for a once neutral country, driven by its neighbor Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Finland's leaders today said their country must apply for NATO membership "without delay". They share a 13-hundred-kilometre border with Russia, and as expected the Kremlin swiftly called the move "a threat," but Finnish president Sauli Niinisto pointed the finger squarely at Putin. Meanwhile neighboring Sweden, which has an even longer history of neutrality, is also expected to make a decision on NATO in the coming days. Joining Christiane to discuss are former Swedish Prime Minister Carl Bildt and former Finnish Prime Minister Alexander Stubb.
Also on today's show: singer, songwriter, actor, activist, and new author Janelle Monáe; author Reshma Saujani.
