Discussion: Ukrainian PM’s resignation

Swept into office by the mass protests that deposed the pro-Russian president Viktor Yanukovych two years ago, Ukraine’s new leaders promised that the country would soon be welcomed into Europe as a thriving new democracy. But now, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk submitted his resignation after having failed to fulfill that promise. He blames Ukrainian politicians for failing to enact “real changes.” What went wrong during his two years in office? The International Monetary Fund has agreed to provide a $17.5 billion emergency lifeline for Ukraine, demanding unpopular economic reforms in exchange for its money. How can the next PM balance between the West’s call for reform in Ukraine and the demands of the Ukrainian people? Join us for an in-depth discussion with Mr. Borys Sobolev, former Ukrainian under-secretary of state and currently a senior advisor in the State Export-Import Bank of Ukraine; Mr. Dmitry Babich, political analyst from Sputnik International News Agency in Moscow; and in Brussels, Mr. Paul Ivan, senior policy analyst from the European Policy Center.
