Deník N | Will the rotation in NATO leadership involve the Czech Republic and Eastern Europe?

This year will see the expected renewal of top posts in NATO and, after the European Parliament elections, also in the European Union.

Viktor Daněk, deputy director of the EUROPEUM Institute, spoke about the selections of candidates for Deník N.

FORUM 24 | Ukraine's accession will mean changes for the European Union itself

In its assessment report, the European Commission recommended EU leaders to open accession negotiations with Ukraine, which is to be decided at the European Council in mid-December.
