For the latest edition of Europe Now, we head to Poland and Hungary. These two EU members both border Ukraine and have both taken in large numbers of Ukrainian refugees. But on more political issues, their governments' responses to the war have been drastically different.

We also explore other key issues, such as the ever-expanding EU files on degradations of rule of law.
