Baltic Rim Economies 4/2019

A special issue on Ukraine

Published on the 29th of November 2019

EU-Ukraine: A two-way street

“Ukraine finds itself in a unique moment following the elections of a historically young parliamentary class and a similarly reform-minded Cabinet of Ministers, committed to transform Ukraine into a strong, prosperous European democracy. The public has set high expectations for the enactment of wide-sweeping reforms and the government has responded with an ambitious five-year plan.”

Dmytro Kuleba
Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration

Latvia’s support for Ukraine is unconditional

“Ukraine’s presence in Latvia’s foreign policy site make an interesting and a rare example of multidimensional cooperation. Even though there is no physical border between Latvia and Ukraine, the joint past ties both countries together more than it might initially seem.”

Artis Pabriks
Dr., Deputy Prime Minister
Minister of Defense of Latvia

The words could save the world from the war

“We enjoy our lives in time of change of balance in the world. In modern times it is not only tanks or missiles, but also the words of media that change the borders, kill people, destroy houses and undermine human dignity.”

Oksana Syroyid
Co-Chair of Lviv Security Forum
Leader of Samopomich Union Party
Ex-Vice Speaker of the Parliament of Ukraine

Foreign policy of Ukraine: Quo vadis?

“Results of presidential and the following pre-term parliamentary elections have changed substantially both political landscape in Ukraine and situation inside the country in general. Actually citizens of Ukraine have presented their unprecedented vote of non-confidence to previous ruling elites and opted for mostly unfamiliar political newcomers. President Zelenskyi and his team are mostly persons with no political experience behind them.”

Oleksiy Semeniy
Dr., Adviser to the Secretary of the NSDC of Ukraine
