23 October, 2014   ▪   Oleksandr Kramar

Nearly everything was predictable at the latest PACE session. Everything except confusion.

10 October, 2014   ▪   Alla Lazareva

10 September, 2014   ▪   Denys Kazanskyi
The advance of Russians in the Donbas has halted the movement of the Ukrainian army eastward and intensified the panic in our rear. However, the shock will soon pass, and society may have no option but to prepare for a cold winter and a lengthy military confrontation
8 September, 2014   ▪   Dmitro Krapyvenko
Ukrainian activists are pursuing the lustration of state organs of professional frauds. Yet another place where lustration of corrupt individuals has to occur is among the Diaspora of the United States
25 August, 2014   ▪   Zenon Zawada
Ukraine is able to stand its ground in a gas war, even if it continues for years. The biggest threat, though, is to get hooked on Russian gas once again in exchange for a discount from Gazprom
20 August, 2014   ▪   Oleksandr Kramar
Russian aggression against Ukraine has forced the world to choose between two ways of handling the aggressor. Each was tested in the 20th century

Chairman of the Lustration Committee speaks about the government’s tricks, the Kremlin’s agents and the need to rebuild government agencies from scratch
15 August, 2014   ▪   Bohdan Butkevych
The Parliament inherited from Yanukovych holds an imminent threat to Ukraine, yet the breakup of pro-European coalition is potentially as dangerous
12 August, 2014   ▪   Oles Oleksiyenko
If the “Donbas pacification plan” announced by Petro Poroshenko is to be implemented effectively, the region’s administrative map could be redrawn more sensibly
9 July, 2014   ▪   Oleksandr Kramar
The Ukrainian Army after 23 years of “ingenious” military reforms and three months of warfare in Eastern Ukraine
8 July, 2014   ▪   Yaroslav Tynchenko

12 June, 2014   ▪   Alla Lazareva
Russian weapons have transformed separatist-controlled territories into a battlefield. The locals support the rebels for promises of order and Soviet values. The region could quickly become the new Transnistria
10 June, 2014   ▪   Fox Trevor
Presidential elections are merely a prologue to the dramatic overhaul of political landscape
3 June, 2014   ▪   Denys Kazanskyi
The question "who controls the separatists in the eastern Ukraine?" has no categorical answer. The insurgents of Donetsk don't have a single command centre. In fact these terrorist groups are controlled by a number of different individuals who often don't see eye to eye.
23 May, 2014   ▪   Denys Kazanskyi
Why some candidates are running in the campaign without a chance to win it
21 May, 2014   ▪   Oles Oleksiyenko
If Russian becomes the second state language or even acquires official status in part of Ukraine’s territory, this will aggravate the discrimination of the Ukrainian-speaking majority and will ease the Kremlin’s expansion
21 May, 2014   ▪   Oleksandr Kramar
Ukraine risks returning to the post-Orange Revolution internal squabbles very soon
20 May, 2014   ▪   Oles Oleksiyenko

Mostly discussed for its regulation of the language of instruction in schools, the new law offers more overlooked important innovations intended to change the quality and the content of education in Ukraine
7 November, Hanna Trehub,
The new law on the reintegration of the occupied parts of the Donbas qualifies them as such and names Russia as the occupier. Yet, it does not launch the process of deoccupation or change the mechanism envisaged in the Minsk Agreement
20 October, Maksym Vikhrov,
This week started off with a bang in Kyiv...and it had nothing to do with working on healthcare reform, which the Verkhovna Rada eventually passed on October 19. The #1 topic became a protest action to push political reforms forward that was called by anti-corruption politicians and former Odesa Governor Mikhail Saakashvili
19 October, Stanislav Kozliuk,
