Event description
We are pleased to invite you to discuss the challenges facing Ukraine five years from Maidan.

About this Event

In January 2014, Ukraine’s then-President Victor Yanukovych passed a series of ‘anti-protest’ laws to quash growing unrest in the country. Within weeks, he would flee for Russia. This was the culmination of three months of protests, which had begun when Yanukovych refused to sign an Association Agreement with the European Union. Following Yanukovych’s toppling, Ukraine announced its intention to integrate closer to Europe.

 

Five years on, Russia’s war in eastern Ukraine, which followed its annexation of Crimea, continues – it is now one of the longest-running conflicts in Europe in almost a century. President Petro Poroshenko has implemented serious reforms but the pace has slowed markedly over recent years, particularly on anti-corruption measures. Much has changed in Ukraine since 2014, but much has remained the same.

 

By kind invitation of Bob Seely MP, the Henry Jackson Society is pleased to invite you to discuss the twin challenges facing Ukraine five years from Maidan: dealing with Russia’s war, and undertaking domestic reforms.
