Black Sea and white nights

Power and People in Eastern Europe

The myth of eastern Europe. What moves people in this part of the world? Matthias Fornoff, his team and ZDF correspondents take a look at moods and developments in the different countries from the Varna on the Black Sea to St. Petersburg. The first part of the political journey takes us through Ukraine, Romania and Moldavia, while part two focuses on Poland, Lithuania and Russia.
