Insight, analysis and expert debate as key policy makers are challenged on the latest news stories. From BBC Radio 4's Today programme.

Mariupol has been one of Russia’s key targets for bombardment and we’ve heard a lot about the besieged Azovstal steel plant over the last few weeks. It’s the site that has been the base for Ukrainians defending the city. Today’s Mishal Husain spoke to Mykhailo Vershynin who has been in the plant for nearly 70 days. Also on the programme was the BBC’s Russia Editor Steve Rosenberg. He reported on the impact constant pro-war messaging on Russian TV was having on opinion polls. (Image Credit: Reuters)
