Transitioning Neighborhood: Belarus, Moldova, and Ukraine

Nearly a year after demonstrations erupted in Kyiv, Ukraine is forming a new government and considering the way forward after the recent parliamentary elections. Moldova faces parliamentary elections at the end of the month in which the survival of the current pro-European coalition is at stake. Belarus has been the seat of the Minsk process, the chief international effort to stop the fighting and find a settlement to the crisis in Eastern Ukraine. Russia and the EU are deeply interested in each of these countries, which all face unresolved questions about their peace, stability, and political orientation. Three former ambassadors to the region discussed recent events and prospects in Belarus, Moldova and Ukraine and a senior State Department official offered a US government perspective on developments in the region.
