The Impact of Ukraine in the Neighborhood

July 22, 2014 // 10:00am12:00pm

Russia's annexation of Crimea and support of separatists in eastern Ukraine is having ripple effects throughout Eurasia.  But what has been the impact in the immediate neighborhood, the South Caucasus, Moldova, and Belarus as well as Ukraine itself? This distinguished panel will examine recent developments and prospects in each focusing first on the situation on the ground in Ukraine, the performance of the Poroshenko government, and the latest Russian moves. Georgia and Moldova, as well as Ukraine have now signed their partnership agreements with the EU; how has Russia reacted? How have internal politics in these countries been affected by Ukraine? What accounts for the nuanced approach taken by Belarus and the release of a prominent political prisoner? And what are the implications for US foreign policy?  Please join us for this special program which will be followed later this year by programs specifically on the South Caucasus and Central Asia.
