  • European summit reasserts 'united' front with Moldova & war-torn Ukraine against Russian aggression

    Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy took his quest for more arms and support to a sprawling summit of some 50 European leaders in Moldova on Thursday, becoming the focal point of an event that seeks to quell regional conflicts and shore up unity in the face of Russia’s war. The meeting of the pan-continental European Political Community, which embraces all European nations other than Russia and Belarus, gathered the heads of state and government from 47 countries but its attention was on the continent's south and east — a region pushed to a turning point in its relationship with Moscow because of Russia's invasion of Ukraine last year. The 27-nation EU wants to use the summit to reach out to many Eastern European countries that spent decades either within the Soviet Union or under its immediate sphere of influence, and to bolster the continent’s unified response to Russian aggression. The choice to hold the summit in Moldova, a former Soviet republic of around 2.6 million people, is seen as a message to the Kremlin both from the EU and the pro-Western Moldovan government, which received EU candidate status in June of last year at the same time as Ukraine. For in-depth analysis and a deeper perspective of this crucial European event, FRANCE 24 is joined by Jacques Rupnik, Director of Research at Sciences Po's Centre of International Research.

  • 'Breakthrough moment': 37 nations committed to prosecuting Russian leaders over crime of aggression

    The French judiciary has launched a war crime investigation into the death of AFP reporter Arman Soldin who was killed in Ukraine, anti-terror prosecutors said Wednesday. Soldin, 32, died when he and his AFP colleagues came under fire by Grad rockets on Tuesday while they were with Ukrainian troops near Chasiv Yar, in the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine. The French probe will be handled by the OCLCH, an investigating unit specialising in crimes against humanity and hate crimes, and will seek to determine the exact circumstances of Soldin's death, the prosecutors said. His death brings to at least 11 the number of journalists, fixers or drivers for media teams killed since Russia invaded Ukraine more than a year ago, according to advocacy groups. For more on France's war crime investigation into the AFP reporter's death, the formation of a new tribunal to prosecute Putin and his accomplices, and a deeper perspective on Russia's nearly decade-old war on Ukraine, FRANCE 24's Mark Owen is joined by Iuliia Mendel, Author, Journalist and former Press Secretary / Spokesperson for Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
