Activity: Talk or presentation typesPresentation


Ukraine has made a clear decision to seek greater integration with the EU despite war and loss of territorial integrity. The EU reaction, given these complications, has been ambivalent. Some argue Ukraine's current challenges render EU accession ill-advised or even impossible. This paper assesses the current situation and identifies several possible paths Kiev may take in relation to the EU and Russia. While Ukraine's place in Europe is partly out of its control and dependent on action or inaction in Brussels and Moscow, its government nonetheless has several possible approaches regarding trade, defense, and foreign policy. It is at this inflection point Ukraine will determine its future.
