Big democracies that depend on Russia
May 21, 2022
Western leaders love to say that Russia's war in Ukraine is a fight for democracy itself.
But not all of the world's democracies agree.
India, the world's largest democracy, remains neutral and keeps buying Russian arms and oil.
In Brazil, the two frontrunners for the presidency are soft on Vladimir Putin. Why? Russian fertilizer.
More than half of African countries won't condemn Russia's invasion, and wheat may have something to do with it.
Framing Ukraine as a battle between democracy and autocracy sounds great, but the reality is more complicated.
