The Economist interviews Tony Blair about Putin and the Ukraine War

I am no fan of Tony Blair, either as a human being or as a political leader, and I am glad that the Editor-in-Chief of the Economist did not shy away from asking him some tough questions in this video interview. 

However, no well-informed person ever called Tony Blair a fool: if he had been as good at actually doing something about any problem as he usually was at identifying it and articulating it he would have gone down as a great Prime Minister. 

He has also had the opportunity to form a far better impression of what Vladimir Putin is like than most people in the West. 

For that reason I think this was an interesting and informative interview and would encourage people to view it.
