On this week’s Washington Week, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine intensifies, as a key city falls and the humanitarian crisis grows. We get the latest from Ukraine and Washington.

Plus, we look at President Biden’s first State of the Union speech, and discuss whether it will give him and his party the boost they need this midterm election year.

Joining moderator Yamiche Alcindor to discuss this and more:

  • Jeff Zeleny, Chief National Affairs Correpondent for CNN

And on the Washington Week Extra, Trymaine Lee, correspondent for MSNBC and host of the “Into America” podcast, joins Yamiche’s panel to discuss policing and police reform, and to mark 10 years since the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin.

Major funding for “Washington Week” is provided by Consumer Cellular, the estate of Arnold Adams, the Yuen Foundation, Sandra and Carl DeLay-Magnuson, Rose Hirschel and Andy Shreeves, Robert and Susan Rosenbaum, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and PBS.
