WEBCAST: Zelensky’s First Year in Office: Successes, Failures, and Outlook for the Future

It has been a year since Ukrainian voters handed a landslide victory to Volodymyr Zelensky. Politically inexperienced, Zelensky inspired unprecedented levels of optimism among the Ukrainian public, riding into office on promises of ending the war in Donbas, reducing corruption, and improving the economy. Has the upstart politician lived up to his promises? On the first anniversary of Zelensky’s swearing into office, Gwendolyn Sasse, Victor Andrusiv, and Mykhailo Minakov will assess the successes and failures of the Zelensky administration.
