Ambassadors Series with Ambassador Kostiantyn Yelisieiev: Ukraine Caught Between the EU and Russia

Over a year after the Maidan 'revolution' the conflict in Ukraine continues to attract global attention. How Ukraine be able to continue on to its path towards a closer relationship with the EU in spite of the many obstacles? Will an unstable ceasefire, undermined by Russian-backed separatists in Eastern Ukraine and the illegal annexation of Crimea, influence foreign policy calculations in Kyiv? How long it will take to stabilize the situation in the country and the wider region? 
Join the next monthly Ambassadors Series with H.E. Mr. Kostiantyn Yelisieiev, Ukrainian Ambassador to the EU who will share his thoughts on this and other issues with YPFP members. We will discuss Ukraine’s crisis situation and its impact on political and economic ties with the European Union and other countries in the region.

Before that he worked at the Permanent Mission of Ukraine to the UN in New York from 1994-1997 and at the Embassy of Ukraine in the Republic of France from 1997-1999.
