French Election Round 2 – Slovak Prime Minister in Ukraine – Russian EU Energy Practices – POLITICO

We analyze the latest from the French presidential election campaign and hear Slovakian Prime Minister Eduard Heger’s first-hand account of his visit to Ukraine. We also delve into the problems Europe faces as it weans itself from Russian energy.

POLITICO’s Andrew Gray, Matthew Karnitschnig and Maïa de La Baume unpack the strategies of Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen as the gloves come off in the second round of the French election. We also discuss Ukraine’s rejection of German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier amid mounting German fears over arms shipments. And we ask what Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer hoped to achieve by visiting Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Our reporter Lili Bayer talks to Slovak Prime Minister Heger about his visit to Ukraine with high-ranking EU officials, including European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen. He describes his meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and a harrowing visit to the city of Bucha, the scene of atrocities against Ukrainian civilians widely condemned as Russian war crimes.

We also hear from Henning Gloystein, director of energy at Eurasia Group, a political risk consultancy. He lays out the obstacles the EU faces in trying to break away from Russian oil and gas – and warns of the risks of winter energy rationing if the bloc doesn’t play its cards right.
