Poland to pay daily fines over judicial reforms; Russia discredits the EU in Mali

This week our podcast focuses on the European Commission’s decision to step up its legal feud with Warsaw by asking the top EU court to impose a daily financial penalty on Poland for its’ non-compliance with temporary measures European judges put in place this past July. To hear more on this story, I’m joined today by EURACTIV’s Vlad Maksimov.

We are also talking about a dispute the EU is having with Russia, this time over the EU multinational military training mission in Mali. What is Russia accusing the EU of and what are the Russian interests here? To bring this story closer to you, I spoke with Aneta Zachova from EURACTIV Czech Republic.
