Coming with a slightly portentous title – 'The collapse of illusions: democracy and war' – this episode sees Tomass Pildegovičs sit down with Raphael Glucksmann, Member of the European Parliament, the Chair of the Special Committee on Foreign Interference in all Democratic Processes in the European Union, including Disinformation to discuss democracy in times of war and how European values are more important than ever.
"For several decades Europe has been living in an illusion. Even though Putin's regime has been testing the waters and straining global societies' nerves with provocations of various scales now and then, we were still believing there are no adversaries close by. Russia's unprovoked and horrendous military aggression toward Ukraine has shattered the illusion and left us with many questions - is there room for democracy in times of war? What can Europe learn from Ukraine's democratic resilience? What does it mean to be a European and what values we are not ready to sacrifice to totalitarian regimes?" a description says.
