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
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
While new authorities are set to play by the old rules, the country is veering further out of control. All hopes are on the army
9 May, 2014   ▪   Bohdan Butkevych
Checkpoints and barricades made out of tires have been installed on the highways of Donetsk region. In the cities administrative buildings have been seized.

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.

1 April, 2014   ▪   Bohdan Butkevych
Behind the nice façade of a top government-level reshuffle, the new Ukrainian authorities are outrageously indiscriminate in other appointments.

21 March, 2014   ▪   Kostyantin Skorkіn

15 March, 2014
It was bitter on the one hand. The West didn’t support us… Kept waiting… Negotiating… On the other hand, what did we expect? Did we hope that Europe would immediately side with the Maidan, believe in Ukrainian civil society and press the tyrant out of power? Firstly, that is not how things are done in international politics. Secondly, European officials had every reason to be skeptical.
10 March, 2014   ▪   Yuriy Makarov
The last week, the Crimea, which had been watching the events unfolding in Kyiv with some aloofness, suddenly erupted. People took to squares with radically different slogans. Some openly stated their desire to live in Russia, while others categorically opposed separation. Against this backdrop, other, equally serious processes were taking place, potentially defining what the future authorities in the Crimea will look like
