The Grey Zones: Eastern Ukraine, Northern Cyprus with Nils Muiznieks

Season 1, Ep. 10

Former European Human Rights Commissioner Nils Muiznieks walks us through the grey zones of Eastern Ukraine and Northern Cyprus, where territory is legally part of one country but controlled by another in an uneasy state between war and peace. Nils discusses the current bloody conflict in Ukraine and the simmering modus vivendi in Cyprus as he recalls official visits to lands beyond the reach of most outside observers.
