Russia meets with Hamas in bid to exploit global chaos

Ian Bremmer shares his insights on global politics this week on World In :60.

Why does Israel's ground invasion of Gaza feel so secretive?

Well, I mean, partially, it's because it's really hard to get information from on the ground. It's not like you've got a lot of journalists or international media that are covering it. The infrastructure is horrible and getting blown up every day, and also because the internet hasn't been working. And because you can't trust any of the local institutions to provide good information because it comes out of Hamas. But leaving that aside, between satellite photos and some eight organizations, the level of brutality and the civilian casualties are still becoming, they're coming through loud and clear, and I'm deeply concerned about the knock-on impact of that for the region, for Israel, for Palestinians, for everybody.

Putin hosts Kim Jong Un at arms summit

Ian Bremmer's Quick Take: Hi everybody. Ian Bremmer here kicking off your week with a Quick Take from London, as you can see.

And Kim Jong Un is now in Russia, Vladivostok, on his armored personal train. People always love to talk about the fact that the train is armored. I guess that's to ensure that if you try to take it out, you're going to have to try really, really hard to meet with Vladimir Putin.

Ian Bremmer: Why Rogue Russia was predicted as Eurasia Group's 2023's top risk

Ian Bremmer: Why Rogue Russia was predicted as Eurasia Group's 2023's top risk

Evan Solomon: Risk number one in 2023, rogue Russia. Tell us why, Ian.

Ian Bremmer: Well, look at how unhappy Putin looks in that graphic, first of all, I mean, that drives a risk just by itself. Look, this is the biggest misjudgment made by any leader on the global stage since we've been covering this stuff in the 90s. Unfortunately for Putin, he has no way to claw back anything like his life pre-status quo ante in February 24th. I mean, at least the Cuban missile crisis you talk about there's this incredible chance of Armageddon and then both sides stepped back, and they were able to do business as usual. That can't happen, right? Putin, he's destroyed his military. He's got an economic position, a country which is being forcibly decoupled from the West, that's not coming back. NATO's expanding. Ukraine is now going to be the best trained, best armed, most effective intelligence, best army in Europe facing Russia. All of that is happening while Putin is failing at every one of his war aims.

Prigozhin's exit shakes Putin's regime

Ian Bremmer's Quick Take: Hi, everybody. Ian Bremmer here and quite a weekend.

We have just gotten through an unprecedented turn of events challenging President Putin in a way that he has not since he's taken power in that country. Mr. Prigozhin, the head of the Wagner Group, built up directly by President Putin, he is solely responsible for Prigozhin's success and power and wealth, and then essentially declaring war against the Kremlin, moving his forces to within dozens of kilometers of Moscow. And then, at the last moment, "cutting a deal" brokered by Belarus's President Aleksandr Lukashenko. He is today still, to the best of our knowledge, a free man. But for how long? It's hard to imagine that's sustainable.

Ian Bremmer: US support for Ukraine vs fear of Russian escalation

Rogue Russia is Eurasia Group's #1 top geopolitical risk for 2023. But what does that mean if you're Ukraine?

For Ian Bremmer, so far Ukraine and NATO have been very aligned on their goals. But that might change in the future if Ukraine's demands threaten unity between the US and its allies, he said in a GZERO Live conversation about Eurasia Group's Top Risks 2023 report.

The West will continue supporting Kyiv. But the last thing America wants is to risk giving the Ukrainians too much or too fast that it'll risk an escalation that could lead to nuclear war.
