Inside Politics
May 9, 2022

The world worried Monday's Victory Day in Russia would bring dramatic action from Vladimir Putin. Instead, it came and went without any public change in posture from the Russian president.

Also in today's show: more stunning revelations from Donald Trump's former defense secretary, and Bono & The Edge visit Kyiv.
