April 16, Roman Malko
The energy sector was always the sore spot that Russia hit every time Ukraine went “too far” in exercising its independence. And the Kremlin was always able to bring the “unruly” Ukrainians into line again. This is how it was, but now things have changed: Ukrainians are no longer afraid of pain and have a chance to fundamentally reform the energy sector in the interests of society. The Ukrainian Week talks to Mykhailo Honchar, one of the few Ukrainian experts who view this sector from the standpoint of Ukrainian society and national security rather than personal gain

“People often come to museums in the Netherlands. Just to hide away from the rain,” Yulia Lytvynets, Chief Custodian of Ukraine’s National Art Museum, says. The recent revolutionary events changed the angle from which her museum’s staff approached preserving the collection and the museum building and building horizontal relationships between museums and individuals.

Ukraine itself must spearhead efforts to counteract Russian aggression. Only then can other countries be expected to help. Disregard for the motivation behind Russia’s policy and a failure to understand Russia’s geopolitical goals are the fundamental reasons why the Ukrainian government is so irresponsible in security issues and the West so helpless in counteracting Russia’s expansion.

With the new administration of Ukraine’s National Bank in place, Ukrainian banks appear to be waking up from lethargic sleep. Countless financial repressions imposed by the Viktor Yanukovych regime are gone, and the banking system is free to develop and grow

Behind the nice façade of a top government-level reshuffle, the new Ukrainian authorities are outrageously indiscriminate in other appointments.

Eastern Ukraine is following in the footsteps of Western Ukraine, but with a considerable delay, natural and historical complications

The Ukrainian Navy in the Crimea has long traditions. In 1771, the Cossacks jointly with the Russian army and with the support of Zaporizhzhian Cossack boats overcame the short-lived resistance of the Turks and Tatars and conquered the peninsula. The tsarist Black Sea fleet was built primarily in the shipyards of Mykolaiv and Kherson, and many Ukrainians were its admirals, officers and seamen. In 1917-18, part of the fleet was Ukrainianized and pledged allegiance to the Central Rada.
