For Russia, defeats on the battlefield, dissent at home
Oct 5, 2022

A deliberate muddying of the facts about its invasion of Ukraine has been Russia’s game plan -- it now brushes off talk of military setbacks by saying it's "regrouping.” But widely circulated videos of Russian soldiers paint a very different picture. Correspondent Melissa Bell reports, followed by an interview with Andrey Kortunov, Director General of the Russian International Affairs Council, a think tank with connections to the Russian foreign ministry. 

Also on today's show: Oscar-nominated actor Stanley Tucci, host of the hit travel series Searching for Italy; Oscar-nominated director Immy Humes, author of The Only Woman.
