Moynihan European Research Centers Present: "Ukraine Between East and West: The EU, Russia, and Ukraine's Strategic Choice" by Kateryna Pishchikova

The European Union (EU) policy toward Eurasia is at a watershed moment. On November 28-29, leaders of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine will meet in Vilnius, Lithuania, for a summit that is due to include the signing of a number of crucial new agreements. Yet, the success of the summit is far from assured. Russia has threatened trade sanctions, energy supply interruptions, and security reprisals against states choosing to sign new agreements with the EU. Ukraine is largely seen as a key country in this geostrategic game. The talk will address the issues at stake for Ukraine in its rapprochement with the EU and relations with Russia.

Dr. Kateryna Pishchikova is a visiting scholar at the Cornell Institute for European Studies.She is the author of Promoting Democracy in Postcommunist Ukraine: The Contradictory Outcomes of US Aid to Women's NGOs(Lynne Rienner, 2011).

Lunch will be provided.
