A New Agenda for a New Ukraine: Political, Security, and Social Dimensions
The Euromaidan Revolution in Ukraine was not simply against the surging corruption of the last decades, but for a new national agenda across the board. Ukrainian society has demonstrated its commitment to change not only in the streets, but more recently in the presidential election and by resisting internal and external pressures to tear the country apart. However, for Ukraine to succeed and to sustain the faith of those who supported the Euromaidan, further deep changes in the political system are still needed. Without such changes, economic and social development in the country is unlikely, and the security situation may worsen once again. Kennan Kyiv Office Director Yaroslav Pylynskyi talked about the first steps the new government needs to take to deliver on its promises of concrete change.
