Europe’s angry farmers and EU funds for Ukraine (finally)

by editor

As farmer protests continue around Europe, we unpack their various concerns and analyze their impact on the European election. We also take you to an extraordinary meeting of EU leaders in Brussels where crucial cash for Ukraine hung in the balance.

Host Sarah Wheaton speaks to POLITICO’s Parliament reporter Eddy Wax among the thousands of tractors and angry farmers in the heart of Brussels. Later in the episode, our in-house experts explain what’s behind the farmers’ uprising and what impact the protests could have on the EU’s ambitious green agenda and the upcoming EU election. We’re joined by Clea Caulcutt in Paris, Matthew Karnitschnig in Berlin, senior climate correspondent Karl Mathiesen, and agriculture reporter Bartosz Brzezinski. And we hear from a protesting farmer in France, who spoke to our colleague Victor Goury-Laffont about his top concerns.

Also in the episode, we head across town to an extraordinary meeting of EU leaders. POLITICO’s chief Brussels correspondent Barbara Moens and senior diplomatic correspondent Jacopo Barigazzi explain the successful outcome after weeks of intense negotiations on financial aid for Ukraine.
