Kazakhstan’s unrest explained and the foreign defence ministers meet in Brest

This week our Beyond the Byline podcast focuses on Kazakhstan, the demonstrations that caused significant unrest across the country, Russia’s involvement, and possible measures coming from the EU. To shed some light on the story, we spoke with EURACTIV’s Senior Editor, Georgi Gotev and Jennifer Brick Murtazashvili, associate professor of international affairs at the University of Pittsburgh.

We also discuss the first informal meeting of foreign and defence ministers under the French EU Council Presidency, including the hot topics on the agenda and the upcoming military strategy document. To hear more on that, I spoke with EURACTIV’s Alexandra Brzozowski and Matthieu Pollet, who are following the meeting from Brest.
