RTVS | The Last Parliamentary Term in the European Parliament

What was the last parliamentary term like in the European Parliament? How did it manage two crises – the war in Ukraine and COVID-19? And how can the aid to Ukraine be assessed? Žiga Faktor, Deputy Director and Head of the Brussels Office of EUROPEUM Institute, answers these and other questions in an interview for Slovak television RTVS.

The European Union has never faced a similar situation before. I dare to say that the aid is very good, even though not everything runs smoothly of course. We have seen several times during meetings of European leaders that Hungary decided to use its veto or influence the wording of the statements. If we look at the financial and military aid or the issue of sanctions against Russia, it is evaluated positively.
