Ukraine since Crimea: Reforms amid Conflict and War
On April 8 2016 UI’s Russia Programme arranged a discussion on Ukraine’s domestic challenges.
Following the Russian annexation of Crimea in 2014, Ukraine’s political and economic situation has changed dramatically. At the same time, Ukraine is also facing difficulties in its reform process.
How can these challenges be handled? What are the potential risk factors and different paths ahead?
