Iran faces repercussions after shooting down a passenger plane

Ian Bremmer joins us from Ethiopia to help us make sense of global political tensions and their origins.

What repercussions will Iran face in the aftermath of shooting down a Ukrainian passenger plane?

Well, big repercussions internationally because the Europeans, the Canadians, plenty met. They lied about it before they finally said, OK. Tried to cover it up. And that means it's going to be much tougher to keep them onside in terms of this Iranian nuclear deal that the Iranians themselves are increasingly pulling away from. Also, big demonstrations on the ground in Iran. That's bad for the Iranians, of course, the worst week they've had in decades.

Finland's Election Veers Right: Europe in 60 Seconds

Is Ukraine going to elect a comedian as president on Sunday?

Well, not exactly comedian. He's an actor, he is a television personality. He is a business man in the entertainment business, you might say. But yes, it's highly likely that Mr. Zelensky will be elected as new president of Ukraine to take office at the beginning of June, but we will have to return to that.

Are nationalist forces gaining strength in the Finnish election?

Well, yes they did fairly well, but roughly the same result as they had in the last election a couple of years ago, with somewhat less than they had in the first election, when they entered the scene in 2011. But it was still more than expected, in view of the fact that they had been splitting and they had been disagreeing and things like that. So it shows the enduring strength of those particular forces - around 17% of the electorate. I think that's roughly the European norm these days.
