Record-breaking droughts force Spain to take emergency measures. We look at the wider picture regionally, where droughts are occurring at an alarming frequency causing severe water shortages. Meanwhile, since the war began, 8.2 million Ukrainians have fled to the EU. Arte Europe weekly learns why many are asking whether to stay or return home. Lastly, we turn to Serbia, where a handful of female comic book artists are challenging the status quo in their field.
