GUEST: SOEREN KERN, geopolitical analyst, Gatestone Institute

Apparently Russian president Vladimir Putin didn’t get the memo about the “New World Order” where mankind lives in “peace and security”. Instead, as the world watched in disbelief, Putin ordered a massive military assault against Ukraine, a large sovereign nation in eastern Europe bordering Russia.

The invasion started slowly but has increased in ferocity, causing widespread death and destruction. The United States and European countries have expressed outrage at Putin and are sending armaments to Ukraine, who is outgunned and outmanned but led by a charismatic president named Volodymyr Zelensky who is inspiring his people to fight back.

So why has Putin invaded Ukraine? What should western nations do in response? What are the ramifications of a major war on the European continent?

Soeren Kern, a Christian geopolitical analyst with the Gatestone Institute, joins us from Europe to answer these questions and more, including how the prophecy in Ezekiel 38-39 applies to Russia, the “army from the north”.
