The EU and the Netherlands are in full swing in times of conflict and crisis. The Russian attack on Ukraine is causing a landslide in European history.
Annette and Mathieu discuss the European response to the war in Ukraine with Mendeltje van Keulen, Europe expert associated with The Hague University of Applied Sciences. How is the war changing key EU dossiers? And what role does the Netherlands play in this?
We also connect with Eveline Bijlsma in Paris. The war brings French President Macron closer to reelection in France’s elections next month. And can any of Macron’s predecessors play a role in a diplomatic solution with Russia?
