What Ukrainians Really Think: 10 Key Insights from Ukraine’s 2017 Opinion Polls

A close examination of a range of recent national opinion polls—on topics like corruption, the health care system, migration, and Russia—show that the Ukrainian public is less optimistic and West-centric than the country’s leaders. Additionally, there is a wide gap in opinions between the residents of different regions, and between various generations.  | детальніше

Council of Europe will share responsibility for grave human rights violations if it gives in to Russia now

Crimean Tatar leaders, the sister of Russia’s youngest Ukrainian political prisoner and prominent Ukrainian human rights organizations have warned the Council of Europe against compromising its own values by giving in to pressure from Russia. There can be no grounds for reinstating Russia’s voting rights within the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe [PACE] while Russia continues its occupation of Crimea, military aggression in Donbas and escalating human rights abuse | детальніше

Legal experts demolish the allegations against Mikheil Saakashvili as his associate jailed

Ukraine’s Prosecutor General cane up with apparently serious allegations on December 5, as well as some intercepted telephone conversations, to back the aborted attempt to detain Mikheil Saakashvili which made headlines throughout the world.  While Saakashvili remains at liberty, his close associate Severion Dangadze has been remanded in custody, without bail, for two months, with this only fuelling concerns expressed by legal specialists about the legal substance to the accusations. | детальніше

Council of Europe will betray its human rights mandate by giving in to Russia, Mr Jagland

The Council of Europe is considering reinstating Russia’s voting rights which were withdrawn after Russia’s invasion and annexation of Crimea in 2014.  Crimea remains under occupation  with ever-mounting human rights abuse, making the reference given to the Council of Europe’s ‘human rights mandate’ as excuse for removing sanctions seem particularly disingenuous. | детальніше

Poland’s right-wing government poised to seize more control of the judiciary than Yanukovych achieved in Ukraine

Poland’s ruling party Prawo i Sprawiedliwość [PiS] is set to gain effective control over the National Council of the Judiciary and influence over all judicial appointments in the country. Many of their moves seem ominously reminiscent of the methods used to gain control - and he hoped, to maintain it, by Ukraine’s ex-President Viktor Yanukovych | детальніше

Poroshenko accused of following in Yanukovych’s tracks over retrograde law

A law recently passed and signed by the President in blitzkrieg fashion strips the heads and deputy heads of local state administrations of their civil servant status, with this removing any requirements for their appointment on a competitive basis, and restrictions on political party affiliation. | детальніше

Ukraine’s Challenges Are Very Real, but Now Is Not the Time for the West to Let Up

​​​​​​​Four years since its Euromaidan revolution, Ukraine is fighting for its survival as an independent and viable state. The country is struggling to hold together and resist Russia’s interference and pressure—in the military, diplomatic, economic, and media spheres.

Ukraine launches spiral of illegality with abduction & expulsion of Georgians linked to Mikheil Saakashvili

Ukraine’s authorities acted in breach of Ukrainian legislation in forcibly removing Georgian nationals from Ukraine on October 21 and November 17, with consequences that are now virtually impossible to restore by legal means.  This is the stark message from Valeria Lutkovska, Ukraine’s Human Rights Ombudsperson after investigating the so-called deportation of Georgians linked with Mikheil Saakashvili, former Georgian President and now fierce critic and aspiring rival to Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko. | детальніше

Deutsche Welle ‘satire’ seems to dispute Russia’s military aggression against Ukraine

Germany’s public broadcaster Deutsche Welle’s first satirical clip in a new series has aroused anger among many Ukrainians.  The humour for a country which has seen such huge human loss since early 2014 seems at very least questionable, and many feel the first ‘Zapovednik’ clip places in question Russia’s military intervention both in Crimea and in eastern Ukraine. | детальніше

Decommunization trials in Lithuania and Ukraine, while Russia defends Soviet past

A court in Vilnius has sentenced Yuri Subbotin, a Lithuanian citizen of Russian descent, to 14 months’ restricted liberty for at least one post in which he praised Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin and the Soviet regime. The norm in Lithuania is similar to one of Ukraine’s decommunization laws, however the penalties are much less severe | детальніше

How to End the War in Eastern Ukraine

The recent US debate about Russia has focused mainly on Moscow’s disinformation, propaganda, and interference in our elections. But Russia’s aggression against Ukraine remains the original sin and the biggest threat. It’s not just Ukraine’s survival as an independent, democratic state that is on the line, but the future of an international order based on the rule of law rather than the law of the jungle. | детальніше

The High Stakes of Ukraine’s Reform Struggle

It is easy to despair about Ukraine ever reforming and becoming a normal European state. Nevertheless, such despair would be a mistaken response to the flood of stories depicting obstructions to reform—even if they are true. While anyone who has dealt with Ukraine in the last twenty-five years has experienced the frustrations of trying to achieve innovation and reform there, that is only one side of the picture. | детальніше

Ukraine may answer to the Court in Strasbourg for abduction-like deportation of three Georgians

The three Georgian nationals who were abducted in the centre of Kyiv on October 21 included a military trainer who has defended Ukraine in Donbas and a man with a Ukrainian wife and child. Any links that some or all of the three men have to former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili may explain the motives behind this extraordinary move, but can surely not excuse its apparent lawlessness. | детальніше

The Saakashvili case: politicians kill the law (updated)

A great deal has been said by many about the stripping of Mikheil Saakashvi’s Ukrainian citizenship by the decree of President Petro Poroshenko on July 25 and his scandal-filled return to Ukraine on September 10. Nonetheless, I would like to draw attention to certain details which have not been discussed and which seem important. | детальніше
