Georgians want a better future

Portugal just elected its weakest government in decades but Ukraine is still a matter of consensus

Most of Portugal’s foreign policy has been driven by its status as a member state of both NATO and the EU.

Finding Sweden’s role in a new NATO

Swedish Minister of Defence Pål Jonson said earlier this year that "war can come to us too."
