Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The paper covers the most recent developments (2020) in the tense relations between the EU and Turkey in terms of managing the flow of asylum seekers. If Turkey "gambles" and blackmails Europe, letting flows of asylum seekers to Greece and along the Balkan route to obtain more funds, Greece responds with de facto rejections, raising a shield, in clear violation of rights of asylum seekers, but in solitude. The European Union, grappling with yet another crisis - linked this time by the COVID-19 pandemic - (voluntarily) loses sight of the vulnerability of migrants and tries to smooth out the situation through new economic resources, technicalities and diplomatic subtleties destined so much to the "brave" Greeks as to the assertive Turkish "hegemonic pretender".
