Russian propaganda — Macron in Africa — Cities for women

We debate what the EU and its leaders can do to counter Russian propaganda, particularly in Africa, about the global food crisis. And we tell the story of Umeå, Sweden, which has become a trailblazer in incorporating gender equality into urban design.

Aitor Hernández-Morales, author of POLITICO’s Living Cities newsletter, is joined by agriculture reporter Eddy Wax to explain the recent U.N.-brokered deal struck in Turkey between Ukraine and Russia to allow for exports of millions of tons of grain through the Black Sea. Clea Calcutt in Paris breaks down French President Emmanuel Macron’s trip to Africa this week, and Brussels politics reporter Ilya Gridneff addresses Russian propaganda about the EU’s role in the food crisis and why the bloc is struggling to combat it.

Then POLITICO’s Giovanna Coi takes us on her recent trip to Sweden to explain how the city of Umeå has become a test case for other European cities — tackling both climate change and urban equality by re-designing itself for women. The story is part of POLITICO’s Living Cities series, which you can sign up for here.
