In the morning program of Äripää radio, we review how the world reacted to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decision to carry out a partial mobilization in the country. What does this mean for us and what developments can it bring on the Ukrainian front, explains Kalle Laanet, a member of the National Defense Committee of the Riigikogu and former Minister of Defense.

How will the US Federal Reserve rate hike affect the global economy and us? What is the state of Estonian companies in the light of recent economic forecasts? Will inflation give way? Indrek Nuume, member of the board of LHV bank, head of corporate banking, will come to the studio. In addition, we will hear from him what exciting things were said and what mood prevailed at the Nordic Business Forum in Helsinki.

The aftermath of the Federal Reserve’s interest rate decision and the resulting developments are also closely monitored by Investor Toomas. What should an investor pay attention to and how to proceed? Juhan Lang, head of Äripäiv’s stock exchange editorial office, will come to the studio, with whom we will also talk about the Investor Toomas investment conference, which promises to bring together more than a thousand guests on January 21, 2023.

US President Joe Biden declared the corona pandemic over. In Estonia, experts in virology have sounded both admonitions and the statement that the corona is now equivalent to the flu. Let’s find out from the head of the scientific council, professor of cell biology of the University of Tartu, Toivo Maimetsa, whether COVID, which claimed 6.5 million lives worldwide, is now a virus like any other, and what to do with this knowledge.
