Ukraine's deputy PM on Kiev's EU ambitions, corruption and Russian influence

Four years ago almost to the day, Ukrainians seeking closer ties with the European Union began gathering in Kiev. By February 2014, the so-called "EuroMaidan" protests would topple the pro-Russian president, Viktor Yanukovich. Our guest is the Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister for European Integration, Ivanna Klympush-Tsintsadze. Four years on from the EuroMaidan protests, how strong is pro-European sentiment in Ukraine?

Meanwhile, as a top official from a Ukrainian anti-corruption body this week turned whistleblower to denounce high-level corruption, will there be high-level indictments to match?

And with Russian former "troll farm" workers speaking out against Russian misinformation campaigns that often target Ukraine, how does Kiev plan to respond?

Our European Affairs Editor Catherine Nicholson asks all these questions and more.

Produced by Isabelle Romero, Anais Guerard and Roxane Runel.
