In this episode Adam and Alexandra are together in a Warsaw studio to discuss the latest news in the region, including the European Commission’s latest enlargement report and recommendations.

After the news rundown, they are joined in the studio with Oktawian Milewski, a political scientist specialising in Central and East European studies. He is a Poland resident correspondent for Radio France Internationale’s Romanian office and a regular guest with Talk Eastern Europe. Oktawian discusses the results of Moldova’s local elections and its impact on that country’s EU integration. He also focuses on the role of oligarchs (outside the country) and the pro-Russian influence that is trying to make a comeback.
