Russian troops in Ukraine, WWI in Africa, and Weekend Passport: Mexican comedian Cantinflas

Andrew Weiss, vice president for studies at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, joins us to discuss the ongoing crisis in the Ukraine. Then, one hundred years ago, at the start of WWI, British and German colonial forces in East Africa went to war. The BBC's Alex Last has been listening to very rare recordings of East African troops, talking about their experiences in World War I. And, Nari Safavi joins us to tell you about a movie celebrating a Mexican comedian, a DJ from Dubai, and a Polish food festival.
