Snap elections, coalition collapses, prisoner swaps, a country changing its name and a twice-extended Brexit process... As 2019 wraps up, FRANCE 24's Europe team looks back on some of the major news events, top guests and some of our best field reporting over the past twelve months. Part 2.


Part 2 includes: Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov on his release from jail in Russia, and his determination to speak out for Ukrainians still held on Russian soil; new EU Commissioner in charge of migration Margaritis Schinas on the future of the EU-Turkey migrant deal; and the new EU head of foreign affairs Josep Borrell on the possibility of Britain and the EU concluding a free trade deal by the end of 2020. Finally, British bestselling authors Jojo Moyes, Kate Mosse and Lee Child give us a literary take on Brexit.
