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.

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
If Ukraine’s top officials are unable to adequately assess the fatal outcome of their efforts in compromise seeking with Russia for Ukraine, they have no right to head the country. If they do realize the danger of the linguistic concession they are about to make, they should be treated as actors in the Russian cultural and language expansion in Ukraine who intentionally undermine its constitutional order and national statehood
20 May, 2014   ▪   Volodymyr Vasylenko

23 April, 2014   ▪   Bohdan Butkevych
Russian military aggression has recently become a constant threat, while the Western powers are failing to fulfil the security guarantees they extended to Ukraine under the 1994 Budapest Memorandum. The issue of nuclear or other similarly effective weapons with which to defend Ukraine’s borders is again high on the agenda
23 April, 2014   ▪   Bohdan Butkevych
For a quarter of a century now, Russia has the dubious distinction of being the biggest provocateur and supporter of separatist projects in the neighbouring countries, which mars its prospects.
16 April, 2014   ▪   Oleksandr Kramar
The anamnesis of Ukraine’s non-nuclear status
16 April, 2014   ▪   Roman Malko
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.
