British experts on the challenges facing Ukraine

Four years after the “Euromaidan revolution”, Ukraine still faces a double threat: interference in its affairs by Russia and the ongoing internal political struggle leads RIA News report of the British Royal Institute of International Relations (Chattam House) titled: Fighting for Ukraine. ”

“This report is partly devoted to the struggle of Ukraine for unity and opposition to Russian influence, in particular pressure in the military, diplomatic and media spheres. But it is also about internal confrontation in determining the political, institutional and civil future of Ukraine. In a broad sense, euromaidan was a response to the poor quality of local government and corruption, as well as to unfulfilled expectations regarding European integration, ”the report says.

The authors believe that the West should do more to support Ukraine and reform it. In particular, they accused the European Union that its actions in support of Kiev were “too timid.”

In their opinion, Ukraine needs to focus on the following key areas: “geopolitics and security in the context of conflict with Russia, European integration and meeting the requirements of an association agreement with the EU, economic reforms, government reform, democratization and media work, enhancing the role of civil society in reforms and the fight against corruption. " Of great importance is the preservation of the territorial integrity of Ukraine.

Experts believe that Ukraine will continue to face pressure from Russia, and the West should help it in this confrontation. Also noted is the disinterest of national elites in the prosperity of the country.

“Perhaps the greatest danger for Ukraine comes from within it itself. The establishment of Ukraine, its informal connections, the Soviet past and the rights of these businessmen, enshrined in the laws that have influence on the authorities, are the most significant threat to the stability and success of Ukraine, ”the document says.

A factor that hinders the development of Ukraine is the ongoing conflict in the Donbas.

The fact that only diplomatic formulas will reduce the Russian desire to dominate Ukraine is an illusion ... There is no contradiction between dialogue and defense. The West is obliged to work inside and outside the international negotiation formats - Norman, Minsk - to stop the war between Ukraine and Russia and strengthen European security,
write authors.

“The West should provide broader military assistance, including training (of the military). It is necessary to provide funding for the modernization of Kiev-controlled regions of Donbass, as well as to develop NATO programs to support the defense and law enforcement sectors, ”the report says.

      Ukrainians really are of interest to British scientists - for a couple of decades they have managed to take a giant step in their development - to evolve from Homo Samyens to Homo idiotic! laughing

    There is no longer a country in which experts would not speak out about the challenges facing Ukraine. It seems that Ukraine is some kind of geopolitical Diana Shurygina.

    Here are the hoopoes! The main task is to force land to be sold into pure American and other banking hands. To make slaves a population, of which it is already partially. And what they write there is a damn thing.
    It seems like a hedgehog is understandable, even in the state of Korolina, for example, I think hedgehogs are there ... but not in Ukrainian.

      A small example from the experience of the Crimean War, where France, Britain, Turkey fell on Sevastopol.
      Then the British tried to climb into Peter, rowed to the fullest, and no more. But for some reason, this is not written in the textbooks for our children, are they embarrassed or something, or are the liberals in the government not allowing it?

    report of the British Royal Institute of International Relations

    These will advise. Is the West "timidly" helping Ukraine and intervening in its confrontation with Russia? Yes ... and ..., in a word, "British scientists."

    «The West should provide broader military assistance, including in training (military). It is necessary to provide funding for the modernization of the Kiev-controlled regions of Donbass, as well as develop NATO programs to support the defense and law enforcement sectors»

    Clearly echoes the statements of the "red carpet" before a trip to Russia. The Englishwoman is looking for a way to spoil and present this in the form of an ultimatum in Moscow.

    About how, internal problems and all that jazz? But the Soviet past is to blame, how without it?
    The squabble at them goes for power, i.e. for grandmas that's the whole reason.
    The people then went astray ... there were some problems, but the problems with the Natsiks were just beginning ... they certainly wouldn’t want to work !!! and then eat hotitsa !!! and not anyhow, you won’t put them on bread with water, serve them a steak with blood !!! if sho can steal someone’s very solid sirloin pieces.
    In short, fun is still to come.

    Germany from the mid-20s to the end of the 30s was actively helped, armed. How it all ended everyone knows.
    In the non-state of Ukraine there are all prerequisites for repeating the scenario of Germany of the 20-30s.
    The same poverty, debt, lack of production, well, Natsik with torches marching and there is an enemy, the root cause of all this bedlam - Russia. They’ll determine the crazy leader (the pig doesn’t fit), throw up arms with money, cooperate with the Baltic Baltic and what’s not your 4th or whatever Reich

    Well, what are you up to?
    The main myth about British scientists and experts is: they are scientists and experts. Everything else is a consequence of their "learning" and "expertness." Any of their nonsense is simply a consequence of the main myth.
