Baltic Rim Economies 2/2021
A special issue on Ukraine
Published on the 31st of March 2021
“At the dawn of the 2020s, Ukraine stands firmly on its European and Euro-Atlantic integration path that it affirmed during the Revolution of Dignity and has been able to defend for the last 7 years despite Russian aggression.”
Minister for Foreign Affairs,
“Finland is and will be a staunch supporter of Ukraine. It is in our interest to have a democratic, stable and prosperous Ukraine as our next-door neighbour. Our goals with Ukraine are manifold. We support the efforts to end the conflict and restore Ukraine’s control over its whole territory, including Crimea.”
Minister for Foreign Affairs,
“In January, Americans celebrated the resilience of our democratic institutions when President Biden swore an oath to protect the U.S. Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. The President’s words were especially resonant in Kyiv, simultaneously underscoring the values we share and the challenges we face alongside the people of Ukraine.”
Chargé d’Affaires a.i.,
“Ukraine is now on the threshold of a mission impossible; it is trying to liberate itself from the Russia’s political influence. In order to survive Ukraine seeks desperately new friends from Europe and overseas. The situation is difficult; Ukraine suffered severely in the economic crisis of 2008 and it is still recovering.”
