This week, we examine China’s role in the Ukraine crisis and lay out the latest EU efforts to bring the war to an end. We also hear how organizations like the United Nations Refugee Agency are supporting Ukrainian refugees.
POLITICO’s Sarah Wheaton keeps us updated with the latest from Europe, including another round of EU sanctions and visits to Kyiv by the prime ministers of Poland, Slovenia and the Czech Republic.
Sarah joins POLITICO EU-China correspondent Stuart Lau, who explains the role China and leader Xi Jinping are playing in this war – whether China will provide economic or military support Russia or try to balance their own interests and side with the West. .
And POLITICO’s David Herszenhorn joins from Brussels to analyze how EU and European leaders are managing their wartime roles.
Our special guest was Sophie Magennis, head of legal and policy support at the UNHCR (United Nations Refugee Agency) representative office on EU affairs in Brussels. Magennis explains the work she is doing in Ukraine and neighboring European countries. She also discussed the EU’s policy response to the needs of more than three million refugees who have fled war in recent weeks. Here’s more information from UNHCR on how you can help people in Belgium and around the world.
