Adam and Aga start this episode by discussing the start of the long-awaited Ukrainian counter-offensive, the apparent move by the Russian Defence Ministry to take over Wagner Group troops, and the results of recent elections in Montenegro.

We then turn towards Bulgaria, which has seen five parliamentary elections in the past two years, the latest of which has just resulted in the formation of what our guest calls "a government of national mistrust". Speaking of our guest, Aga sat down with Spasimir Domaradzki, a lecturer at the University of Warsaw and senior political analyst in the Balkan division at the Institute for Central Europe. Together they delve deep into the roots of the crisis, different political forces and actors involved, and the prospects for the newly-created government.
