EU observes tension on Ukrainian border and Spain counts dead migrants in the Atlantic

In the first episode of 2022, EURACTIV’s Beyond the Byline focuses on the tension between Russia and Kyiv and the EU’s role in it. A story that started some months ago requires close attention and possibly action from the West. To shed some light on what is happening on the Russian and Ukrainian borders, I’m joined today by EURACTIV’s Alexandra Brzozowski.

Regarding another ongoing issue, this time in Spain, recently published reports show that the past year was the deadliest on the western Euro-African border. Over 12 months, 4,016 people lost their lives on the dangerous Canary Route. I spoke with EURACTIV’S reporter for Spain, Pol Afonso Fortuny, to hear more about this story.
